Smart distribution: RSE and A2A together for the Lambrate Project

Smart distribution: RSE and A2A together for the Lambrate Project

Our test facility is one of the distinctive features of Lambrate Project in comparison to other distribution pilot projects.


In the framework of Smart distribution demonstration projects, launched by the Italian Energy Authority and focused on MV networks, A2A Reti Elettriche, city of Milan Distribution System Operator (DSO), sets up an implementation of smart distribution concept to a real MV network in the Milan urban area (Lambrate Smart Grid Project). The project is aimed at restructuring the MV network underlying the Lambrate Primary Substation (220/23 kV) involving 21 Secondary Substations and 5 Active Users, including RSE's Distributed Energy Resources Test Facility (RSE DER-TF).

This facility is one of the distinctive features of Lambrate Project in comparison to other distribution pilot projects. It is a LV microgrid with a configurable network topology over a 20,000 m2 area. Several generation systems (from RES to CHP), storage systems and loads are connected.

With its own control system, it can be considered as a dispatchable unit by the DSO extending the range of possible experimental tests; specific functions such as remote disconnection, active and reactive power control or fault simulations, difficult to perform with other Active Users, can be easily and flexibly performed.
The results of the collaboration between A2A and RSE will be presented by Maurizio Verga at the POWER-GEN Europe and Renewable Energy World Europe 2016, the largest and most comprehensive conference and exhibition for the European electricity and power technology sector, a 3 day event being held from 21th June to the 23th June in Milan, Italy.

After the project description, the micro grid system architecture, installed equipment, control and management functions are presented in this paper, and significant experimental results are discussed.
