Evolution of existing power systems towards the Smart Grids has highlighted a great number of potential pitfalls and unsolved issues which are postponing its streamlined progress. Collective control of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) through the model of Virtual Power Plant (VPP) is one of the key Smart Grid concepts lacking the capability of seamless integration. The IEC 61850 standard defines future-proof automation architecture with core relevance to the Smart Grid. One of the main IEC… CONTINUE READING
