Using the flexibility of batteries and households, the overall stress on the network can be reduced, reinforcements to the grid can be postponed or even avoided, and losses can be minimized. However, the current pricing mechanisms do not stimulate to obtain these goals. Within the GridFlex Heeten project, we calculate and send these control signals to 24 household batteries and send incentive signals to households. Determining the control and incentive signals depends on the criteria we take for our optimization. Therefore, the entire network, including geographical layout is modelled and described in a simulation tool called DEMKit.
