Project

ANM4L - Active Network Management For All

Goal: ANM4L aims at demonstrating how innovative active network management (ANM) solutions can increase the integration of renewable energy sources (RES) in electricity distribution networks. ANM solutions will consider both management of active and reactive power to avoid overload situations, maintain voltages within limits, minimize the need of RES curtailment, and enable further RES uptake even when the theoretical design limit of the network has been reached.

Core research and development activities are the development of 1) active network management methods for local energy systems 2) business models to provide decision support for market players and 3) an integrated toolbox to support the planning and operation of the distribution system, considering the developed ANM methods and business models. The toolbox, methods and business models for ANM will be demonstrated in Sweden and Hungary. The project will also prepare solutions and recommendations for replication in other local and regional energy systems.

This deliverable is part of Work package 1 (WP1): Functional specifications based on the needs and need-owners. The main objective of WP1 is to set the framework of the project and ensure that the demonstrations and associated toolbox take into account the needs of the need-owners and that the KPIs used are able to reflect the true value of the proposed solutions. The needs and needowners have been outlined previously in deliverables D1.1 & D1.2. This document, D1.3, will provide an overview of ANM solutions deemed applicable for integration into WP5 demonstration grids. In doing so provide an overview of functions relevant for the implementation of demonstrations in Hungary and Sweden.
This deliverable is part of Work package 1 (WP1): Functional specifications based on the identification of needs and need-owners, with co-creation process. The main objective of WP1 is to set the framework of the project and in particular the technical work packages, and ensure that the developed toolbox and demonstrations take into account the needs of the need-owners and that the Key-Performance Indicators (KPIs) used are able to reflect true value of the toolbox. This document provides an overview of the need-owners and their needs to be considered in functional specifications created in the other tasks of this WP. The identified need-owners and needs will be considered from a generic perspective in WP 2,3,4 and for the specifics of the demonstration in WP5.
