The SmartHG project has delivered a suite of Integrated software services (the SmartHG Platform) supporting management of the Electrical Distribution Network (SmartHG Grid Services) as well as of energy storage devices, such as batteries or electrical vehicles, at residential homes (SmartHG Home Services).
Benefits that suit everyone
SmartHG project benefits:
- Keep operating conditions of the electrical grid within given healthy bounds
- Minimise energy costs
- Minimise CO2 emissions
Such possibly conflicting objectives were achieved by:
- Exploiting knowledge (demand awareness) of electrical energy production/consumption habits of residential users as gained from SmartHG sensing and communication infrastructure.
- Developing a two-tier hierarchical control schema where at the top tier, the DSO computes (SmartHG Grid Services) power constraints for each home and at the bottom tier, each home controls (SmartHG Home Services) energy storage devices in order to meet DSO provided power constraints.
The Consortium is composed of 11 partners from 6 different countries (Italy, Denmark, Israel, Spain, Germany, and Belarus). It includes 2 universities, 2 research institutions, 1 public entity, and 6 companies, thus resulting in a multidisciplinary partnership, that mix both theoretical and applied research, as well as a strong experience in real-world applications.
