Abstract
Coordinating flexibility from distributed energy resources (DER) poses a challenge as it becomes increasingly relevant for individual profitability and market integration as well as system and local needs (ancillary services). This paper introduces Topological Power Plants as a holistic integration approach for DER networks aiming at efficient market participation as well as at providing ancillary services. A distinguishing feature is the discussion of the approach by means of specific use cases in connection with corresponding role distributions. After outlining the concept, the developed modelling framework is described and preliminary results from field tests in southern Germany are evaluated.
