  3. 3. The Future Electricity Markets and New Sources of Flexibility Themes: SGEM Vision, Demand Response Koreneff, Göran; Kiviluoma, Juha; Similä, Lassi; Forsström, Juha VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Objectives We study the European electricity market development to 2020 and 2035 and how active resources and increasing variable power production fit in. The value of DR indicates future business potential for flexibility With only a small amount of DR*, its value is considerable, but it decreases rapidly with increasing penetration. Price scenarios for the future electricity markets *) The Demand Response analysed here had relatively high marginal cost (80-150 €/MWh) and was not able to shift demand in time. The results from a study are based on a unit commitment and dispatch model WILMAR. Capacity mechanisms needed for flexibility and resource adequacy? The IEA demands in the 2°C scenario (2DS) , the 4°C scenario (4DS) , and the carbon neutral scenario (CNS) are from IEA Nordic Energy Technology Perspectives 2013. The SGEM VTT demand scenario is based on NREAP:s and on the most recent Finnish energy strategy update material in 2013. We have assessed power market price reactions to the EU’s energy market integration, climate change mitigation, energy efficiency and RES deployment policies to 2020 and beyond. The shale gas revolution has deeply affected also EU electricity market: fossil fuel prices are lower and coal is back in business. Will this last? Next steps in SGEM WT 7.2 Analysis of integrated European power markets, variable generation, flexibility and the value of DER. We need input from the themes SGEM Vision, DR, and on development of distributed generation capacity. SGEM unconference 24.-25.10.2013 Source: De Vries (2004) The future demand affects the market price as well as the, especially nuclear and RES-E, capacity development. An intense debate on capacity mechanisms in the EU in general and especially in DE, FR, and GB is ongoing. We have reviewed different capacity mechanisms and their characteristics from a SGEM perspective.

  5. 5. Assessment of Interdependencies between Mobile Communication and Electricity Distribution Networks Interdependency of mobile communication and electricity distribution networks has increased due to automation and digitalization. On-going modernization of grids has motivated energy companies to seek new cost-effective and reliable wireless technologies to enable real-time remote control and monitoring of electricity grids covering vast areas. Our study focuses on the following questions: • Are commercial communication networks sufficient for smart grid communication in sparsely populated areas? • How vulnerable are the communication networks to different sized failures? • How should smart grid and mobile communication networks be enhanced in order to make them more resilient and robust? © Olli Pihlajamaa Modelling Storm Fault Analysis Fault analysis Storm simulation Fine tuning Our case study concentrated on storm Patrick, which swept over the Scandinavian peninsula towards the Baltic Sea in 26.12.2011. It was the worst storm in 30 years and caused 60 M€ damages to energy companies in Finland. The storm Patrick was simulated using outage reports from the medium-voltage distribution networks. The result graphs below show the percentage of operational secondary substations, operational masts and the percentage of no-coverage areas during the storm without and with battery backup. Red symbols indicate the failure phases and green ones the recovery phases. The graph shows that just after the storm, there were only ¼ of the secondary substations operational. Coverage and Redundancy Calculations Findings The challenge was to build a realistic simulation model to study interdependencies between electricity distribution and mobile communication. We implemented a simulation tool, which enables detailed modelling of electricity distribution networks, mobile communication networks (e.g., GSM-900, UMTS-900, and LTE), and 3D propagation environment. To affirm the reliability, the models and calculation parameters can be finetuned using field measurements in order to make realistic coverage and redundancy (numbers of base stations available at the given location) calculations as well as storm fault analysis. The redundancy calculations indicated that networks, which are primarily dedicated to provide coverage, like GSM-900, offer higher redundancy level in rural areas than the networks, which provide additional capacity. The simulations emphasized the importance of ensuring the power supply of the critical base stations. This improves the resiliency of telecommunication networks, which in turn has a significant effect on clearance and repair work and wireless remote control of electricity distribution entities. The key factors of telecommunication networks’ resiliency are: the cell size, coverage redundancy, speed of the clearance work, and the duration of battery backups. Contacts:,

  8. 8. VTT TECHNICAL RESEARCH CENTRE OF FINLAND Demonstration of a low-cost fault detector for sum current measurement of overhead MV lines Henry Rimminen, Research Scientist, VTT • Antti Kostiainen, Solution Development Manager, ABB • Heikki Seppä, Research Professor, VTT Introduction We present field test performance of low-cost wireless current sensors, which harvest power from the lines. Handmade unit price was $75 excluding the enclosures. Three sensors measure current of each phase in a 20 kV power line. They are synchronized by radio and then locked in to 50 Hz, which enables sum current calculation. Current is measured with induction coils. In unearthed and in compensated networks, detection of faults using sum current is useful, since the earth fault current is often smaller than the load current. Typical fault detectors rely on sensing dynamic phenomena on earth faults. With sum current measurement, one can set a fixed threshold instead of a dynamic one. See concept in Figure 1. Figure 3. Measured and reference waveforms during faults. Minimum tripping threshold was found to be 5 A based on the healthy state variation of the sum current. See Figure 4. The recorded earth faults with resistances of 0…330 ȍ were above this threshold. The detectors harvest energy from the line with current transformers. We observed charging of the batteries when the detectors were set in a low power mode, but the consumption in measurement mode exceeded the harvested power. Figure 1. Concept of the system. Field test performance The detectors were field tested in Masala, Kirkkonummi, Finland in April 2012. The field test was arranged by ABB and Fortum. Figure 2 shows the three detectors at the test site. Figure 3 shows the measured waveforms (DUT) and the substation waveforms (Ref.) during four induced earth faults. The fault resistances were 0, 150, 330 and 5000 ȍ, and the faults lasted for 400 ms. The waveforms match closely. Figure 4. Variation of measured sum current in a healthy state. Conclusions ƒ We used wireless summation of three-phase current for earth fault detection ƒ Earth faults up to 330 ȍ were detectable ƒ Lowest tripping threshold was 5 A ƒ Energy harvesting was not yet adequate, but will be improved in the next generation devices This work was funded by CLEEN/SGEM program of TEKES –the Finnish funding Agency for Technology and Innovation.

  13. 13. Methods for load modelling Summary Integration of data and models Accurate load models for different time horizons are developed in collaboration to enable smart grids and energy markets. measurements + initial information = model = estimation, prediction and optimization Data from different sources is used for estimating loads. For example, income taxation statistics can be combined with share of single family houses to estimate the introduction of electric vehicles in a network area. Background Smart grids are all about distribution side networks and customers becoming active and smart and thus helping to manage the expected massive changes in power generation (more distributed, more renewables, more intermittency, etc.). The customer side is also experiencing significant changes such as heat pumps, electric vehicles, micro-CHP, PV, and dynamic demand response. Thus it is more and more important and challenging to model and forecast the loads accurately. Meanwhile the amount and quality of information available Dynamic load response models for load modelling improves rapidly. For example, hourly Load responses to control actions are modelled based on metered consumption of practically every customer is in measurements from substations and smart meters, and Finland available by 2014 due to new technology and weather and building data. legislation. Field tests for response modelling, an example Putting new meters to good use We are developing and testing new ways to cluster customers into new and automatic groups, which has profound advantages over traditional load profiles (46 customer types) that hitherto have been in use. Average measured response of a test group (blue) vs. a control group (green), difference is dotted red. One hour long control action. Both groups are also subject to static Time-of-Use control.

Especially household loads are difficult to model and forecast, because they are the sum of many sub loads, whereof some are large and distinct, e.g. electric heating.

  15. 15. Theme: Demand response Contact person: Samuli Honkapuro, LUT ( Objectives Main achievements The objective of the research is to find out what kinds of business, pricing, and market models provide the highest benefits of the smart grid technology for different stakeholders. The research concerning business impacts described here is mainly carried out in WP 7. However, business impacts cannot be analyzed without considering technological development and practical implications. Thus, the cooperation between the different themes and WPs inside SGEM, as well as collaboration between research and industrial organizations, have been utmost important for this research work. For instance, the impacts and possibilities of the demand response are being studied from technological, economical, and societal perspectives. This is done by laboratory demonstrations, piloting, analyzing real-life data, and by conducting customer surveys and interviews. This kind of research work could not be done without SGEM collaboration. One of the key elements in these analyses, which combine the technical and business research, is the big picture concerning the holistic impacts of market player actions. The (simplified) picture below illustrates these actions and impacts. Studied issues include: • The business and pricing models of the DSO, retailer, and aggregator • Conflict of interest between the market players • Demand response and customer behavior • Smart metering and energy management services TRANSMISSION SYSTEM OPERATOR (TSO) DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM OPERATOR (DSO) STATE Monopoly regulation TSO tariff DSO business model DSO tariffs RETAILER / AGGREGATOR CUSTOMER Taxes Incentives for customer to optimize the energy usage Retail tariffs Retailer’s business model DSO’s revenue demand Retailer’s revenue stream Capital expenses Operational expenses Investment needs Network losses Retailer’s revenue demand Metering and billing Retailer’s electricity purchase costs Total demand of energy and power Peak demand DSO’s revenue stream Accuracy of load forecast SGEM unconference 24.-25.10.2013 Electricity wholesale price

The aim is to afford a blueprint of an ecosystem to identify the problematic nodes and provide alternatives how to overcome possible obstacles in order to develop a functioning demand response ecosystem for this field. Main achievements Based on earlier work on SGEM, we have considered that a consumer may not be treated as the end customer in this ecosystem. Thus, the value proposition of DR should be developed by considering a DSO, TSO, retailer, or even yet non-existing aggregator as the end customer in this business ecosystem. Substantial economic, environmental, and social advantages are possible through DR utilization in these cases. For instance, an electricity supplier can cut its future balancing costs if load shifting and shedding are at its disposal. Next steps We are going to study the business ecosystems of several different DR programs and strive for identifying the key obstacles hindering the development of thriving DR businesses. We see crucial the identification of the key elements and their explicit locations in the ecosystem as well as detecting the ways to overcome the key obstacles to bring about the DR businesses to boom. This work will be supported with business model examinations. A value blueprint of DR ecosystem. Herein direct load control (DLC) program to exploit DR is demonstrated—i.e., one possible way to do DR business. E.g., some price-based programs pass the responsibility for load adjustments onto consumers whereby the blueprint outlines slightly differently. SGEM unconference 24.-25.10.2013

  20. 20. Effects of demand response on load profiling Theme: Demand Response Kaisa Grip, Antti Mutanen and Pertti Järventausta Tampere University of Technology Objectives This study analyses different load alternatives stemming from combinations of load, demand response and microgeneration (Figure 1). Their effects on load profiling accuracy and development needs are studied. Here, the combination of load and demand response has been chosen for more detailed examination. Figure 3. Behaviour of loads in February 2010–2013 Figure 1. Potential load alternatives The effect of spot-price based water heater control can be seen clearly but the effect of power band control is difficult to see due to the stochastic variation between years. The effect of power band control can be seen more clearly from the load duration curves (Figure 4). Load was shifted from peak hours to a time of lower consumption. In load duration curves this can be seen as a hill under the hysteresis value. Main achievements The effect of demand response to customer level load behaviour was demonstrated with power band and spot-price based load control. The energy consumption of a pilot customer was held under a given threshold value with a power band based load control (Figure 2) and the water heater was controlled based on the spot-price. Figure 3 shows the combined effect of power band and spot-price based load control on February’s load profile. Figure 2. Load curves Figure 4. Load duration curves for February’s 2011-2013 Next steps In terms of load profiling and forecasting, the new load control functionalities complicate the modelling and forecasting tasks. To some extend, the changes can be modelled with new customer class models. But in order to model demand response and microgeneration more accurately we should be able to separate controllable load and generation from rest of the load. Then, for example, a solar irradiation dependent PV model could be used to model solar panels. Figure 2.

  22. 22. Smart Metering Based Dynamic Demand Response Summary Dynamic market based demand response using smart meters was developed and implemented in large scale. Demand response reduces costs and risks regarding prices and reliability of the electricity market and system. Background and objective Demand side response enables smart grids, more distributed generation, full utilization of renewable energy sources, more electrical vehicles, and better security of the electricity system and electricity market. Thus it is an essential tool for reducing emissions and costs. Dynamic load control via smart metering systems is developed to replace the traditional static time of use controls and tariffs. In addition to market price based Demand Response the solution developed supports many other load control needs. In December 2012 dynamic load control started with about 1000 consumers. Observed controlled power was about 17 MW and the total power of the customers was about 20 MW. (Some non-controllable consumption and lost control messages.) Vantaa Energy Electricity Networks completed tests with 1 house and has started new tests. The houses have partial heating storage. Fortum is completing a study on how the developed dynamic demand response model fits to their smart metering system. SGEM helps E.ON Kainuu in direct load control field tests with about 7000 partial heating storage houses in time of use control. Test planning and data analyzing and modeling. Some field test results, full storage Old static load control vs. the new dynamic control Continuation and collaboration Results so far (May 2013) Two smart metering system vendors have implemented the dynamic demand response operating model developed. Electricity retailers participating control the loads based on their needs using the messaging developed. Helen Electricity Network started field trials in 2010-2011. By February 2012 about 500 consumers (10 MW) were connected and in February 2013 about 50 MW. All are full heating storage houses. Analyze field test data and develop short term prediction and optimization models for the loads and dynamic responses. Study and develop the approach in partial storage heating. Promote wider adoption. More DSOs, Metering operators, smart meter vendors, and electricity retailers and aggregators. Test performance regarding latency and reliability.

Uurasjärvi, J-P Pulkkinen, J. Mörsky, M. Kailu Aalto University, Helen Sähköverkko, Vantaan Energia Sähköverkot, Elenia, Tekla Objectives Supply of electrical energy is vital for the society. To be able to respond appropriately to the long term future development, the DSOs should anticipate the amount, location and timing of the power system infrastructure required. Due to numerous uncertainties, a scenario approach is needed. The present spatial loading and its historical analysis is the starting point in the planning process. The future plans of the regional and local land use and the foreseen changes in the use of electricity have to be then assessed. For this purpose, Spatial Load Analysis and Scenario Tool is essential in Grid Planning.

  25. 25. Statistical Analysis of Large Scale Wind Power Generation Theme: Grid Planning and Solutions M. Koivisto, J. Ekström, M. Lehtonen, L. Haarla Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering Objectives As more wind power plants are installed, the effect of wind power on the electric power system is becoming increasingly important. It is thus important to understand the contemporaneous behavior of wind power generation in multiple locations. The estimation of probabilities for very high or low wind speeds in several locations is required for the long term planning of power systems with a high amount of wind power capacity. Knowing wind speeds and wind power generation in locations where no wind speed measurement data yet exist enables creating different power flow scenarios for long term planning. With the scenarios it is possible to plan grid reinforcements and reserve capacity. Main Achievements •The combined effect of large scale wind power generation can be analyzed with statistical models. •Individual locations are modeled by a wind speed distribution for each location. •The dependence structure of the multiple locations is analyzed using a multivariate time series model. •Each location has its own power curve to asses the power generation of all the locations. •New non-measured locations can be added to the models. •Monte Carlo simulations are used to assess the risk of extreme wind power generation situations. The combined production of ten 3.3 MW units when the units are geographically close to each other. The combined production of ten 3.3 MW units when the units are geographically highly spread. Next steps Creating different scenarios with high altitude data The RXCFs of the data and the transformed VARX Modeling the whole wind power generation and ARC models (averages of the 100 simulation structure of Finland runs) for Vantaa and Pirkkala.

  50. 50. Small Scale Production Consumers Theme: Microgrids DER Merja Pakkanen University of Vaasa Maria Tuuri University of Vaasa Objectives Our main objective is to identify the level of awareness interest and the main prerequisites, motives and barriers of the household customers regarding their own electricity production. Main achievements These results are based on 20 in-depth expert interviews, which helped us to understand the most important issues regarding small scale production. So far, solar electricity is the most suitable production method option for the households. The most potential groups are typically 50-60 years old, technologically oriented detached house owners. The households would mainly want to produce electricity for their own use, but they would also like to have a possibility to sell their excess electricity. The main barriers for the households for not to purchase solar panels, are the costs being too high and the repayment period being too long. The acceptable repayment period is less than 10 years which is currently not usually achieved. The main motivating factors are possibility to save money in the long run and to decrease the dependency on the electricity company. Environmentalism is a ”nice bonus” but green values are not considered to be the main motivation for the households to produce electricity. Easiness is key. Purchasing and installing solar panels must be simple and require as little bureaucracy as possible. Improved profitability is also ”a must”. Financial supports would obviously also increase the interest but the experts do not consider this being the right solution. ”Possibility to get turnkey installation” is definitely important for the households, because many of them do not have enough time, skills and interest to do everything by themselves. Next steps Too long repayment period is one of the most significant barriers. The next step is to interview those consumers that already produce their own electricity in order to find out what motivated them to invest in solar panels, how did the process go, have they been satisfied with their decision etc. After that, we aim at doing a questionnaire study for the detached house owners who do not produce electricity: What is their level of awareness and interest, what would be needed in order to activate them etc.? Needed: A good channel for distributing the questionnaire for the detached house owners. Any ideas?? SGEM unconference 24.-25.10.2013
