Intelligent Distribution Power Router (IDPR)
The Intelligent Distribution Power Router (IDPR) is a power electronic device. Connecting it in parallel with the low voltage grid provides power quality improvement: active compensation of current harmonic, reactive power and unbalance on the current demand side. At the same time, it can integrate an energy storage system, such as a battery system. Also active and reactive power can be dispatched be-cause of its 4-quadrant operation.
A normal operation mode is conceived to convert the entire system downstream to an aggregated bidirectional load that can be regulated in order to match the upstream requirements of the system operator in terms of stability and energy management. This is how the IDPR is aimed to be a powerful element to integrate distributed generation, renewables sources, domestic or industrial loads or electric vehicles. Moreover, it offers the possibility to apply several flexibility services such as short-term congestion management and voltage/reactive power control, day ahead and intraday portfolio optimization, self-balancing and peak shaving power control .
In case of grid failure or a scheduled disconnection, the IDPR is able to restore the low voltage grid in isolated mode. The grid-disconnected operation provides a voltage reference to the system in order to supply loads, distributed generation and/or storage systems.
The control system of the IDPR is managed by the system operator setpoints as well as a permanent monitoring of the power flow up-stream and downstream of its coupling point.
