A Scalable Geographic Routing Protocol for Virtual Power Plant Communications

Abstract : ICT is an enabling technology for the integration of distributed energy resources and storage (DERS) within the power grid as well as implementation for innovative services such as demand side management (DSM) and demand response (DR). Nevertheless, individual DERS are too small to be allowed access to energy market, likewise utilities are unable to effectively control and manage small DERS. Virtual power plants are a concept, that can solve this sparsity problem, they attempt to aggregate DERS to present them to the rest of the power grid as a unique technical and/or commercial entity. This contribution deals with ICT for the VPPs. It presents a novel geographic routing protocol that is able to support different control strategies for the VPPs and accommodate their dynamic structure with seamless enrollment and dis-enrollment of prosumers.
