Abstract

The high penetration of PV systems in a residential district reduces the use of fossil fuels, emission of CO2 and pollutants and energy losses, but requires a fine-tuned management of the grid. Within the Swiss2Grid (S2G) pilot project, 20 private households in the same district have been equipped with smart PV energy production units. The installations have been provided with high quality monitoring systems, in time match with monitoring devices installed in the distribution grid and the LV transformer. The collected data are used to support the development of an algorithm for the decentralized management of households loads. The results of the preliminary measurements campaign are presented before applying the algorithm.
