Use Cases

The project use cases demonstrate how a constraint-aware dispatch signal can be generated through the joint product solution. The solution aims to optimally dispatch DERs for participation in a bulk market while serving local grid needs without affecting grid reliability and also giving LDCs visibility and control over participating assets.

Controls and monitoring
Network visibility
Solar PV
Electric Vehicle chargers
Battery storage

All customer roles have visibility over assets participating in bulk market or local flexibility

LDC Role provides local flexibility requests

Aggregator role participates in bulk market when bulk request is available, and price is high

Aggregator role meets local request when local request is available and price is high

Aggregator role configures and operates DER for local flexibility and bulk market participation
