Work package on Requirement Analysis and System Level Specifications starts working
27.-28.05.15, Aachen, Germany
With a two-day workshop the consortium partners in charge of the work package on requirement analysis and system level specifications came together to prepare the upcoming tasks.
This work package will provide specification of the core project framework with regards to technical requirements under regulatory constraints and standardization aspects, and will define technical and commercial services enabled by energy storage and its interaction with other local energy resources (e.g. local generation and load management) in various building and network scenarios. Different scenarios integrating energy storage concepts are specified in this work package and related regulatory and standardization constraints are analysed in order to derive integration concepts for thermal and electrical energetic optimization.
The definition of technical and commercial services offered by distributed storage under the lead of partner Engineering is an important input for other work packages. The wide range of test sites allows different use cases to be realized, ranging from optimized integration of thermal and electrical aspects at building and grid level for reduce energy consumption, to the provision of ancillary services for grid support, including fast services like reactive power injection or spinning reserves.
The service specification is one of the first deliverables (non-public) within the ELSA project. Therefore, the ELSA team discussed and identified the ELSA Storylines as well as the consolidated actors. Each Storyline, which stands for a main scenario, is based and linked to the characteristics of the test sites. Consequently, each test site could be integrated into a Storyline. Within each Storyline potential services and use cases were discussed and identified. Further the next steps in order to finish the deliverable were determined.
