The research project SERVING, located on the 6th Energy Research Programme – Energy Saving and Energy Efficiency, has the aim to operate intelligently the distribution grid with the help of a Service-Platform. The infrastructure of distribution grid will be operated in an optimal way under consideration of decentralized Renewable Energy Plants and the use of controllable loads. Thereby, the highest flexibility potentials of consumers are available to energy suppliers. The Service-Platform is not only responsible for the communication, it also performs the state-estimation of the distribution grid and takes various requirements of the market into account. In case of network bottlenecks or quality problems the load is shifted by help of a new load-allocation algorithm. This method is practically tested on the basis of heat storage systems and water supply systems. The development of the Service-Platform-Distribution-Grid is a sustainable step within the evolution of the distribution grid into a smart grid and provides a holistic solution for reliable distribution grids in the future.
