Ventyx, an ABB company, has announced it is joining the development project entitled Smart Grid Gotland in Sweden. The project has begun in September 2012 and will run to December 2015.
The project has three overall objectives:
  1. cost efficiently increase the hosting capacity for wind power in an existing distribution system
  2. show that novel technology can improve the power quality in a rural grid with large quantities of installed wind power
  3. create possibilities for demand-side participation in the electricity market, in order to shift load from peak load hours to peak production hours.
As part of the project, Ventyx will deploy a Distribution System Optimisation solution encompassing network control, demand response management, demand forecasting and business analytics to support the project, enabling large quantities of wind and other renewable and distributed energy sources to be integrated into the grid, while maintaining reliability and providing better operational performance. The distribution management system (DMS) software by Ventyx, integrated with ABB hardware, will be used to address bottlenecks in the distribution network that may restrict the flow from the wind turbines to consumers. Smart Grid Gotland is a cooperation project between Vattenfall, ABB, GEAB, Svenska Kraftnat, Schneider Electric and KTH, and is partly financed by the Swedish Energy Agency.
