To deal mainly with destructive events of a meteorological nature, it is necessary to evolve the current power grid into a decentralized, distributed communicating vessels model made up of virtual zones, which are made up of Consumption Unit (CU) and Production Units (PU) that can be aggregated according to affinity and homogeneity, with different degrees of flexibility priority “mapped” in their consumption / production program (baseline).
The new Adaptive Power Grid model adapts to the resources available and present within each Virtual Zone (VZ), maximizing the use of renewable sources, minimizing imbalances using the flexibility of CUs via the Virtual Node Dispatching (VND) (IoT gateway that manages all CU/PU systems belonging to the different zones) and valoring the baseline (energy programs) of the PU and CU resources. This model extended to all Virtual Power Plant (VPP), Microgrids (MG), districts industrials, energy communities, consortiums, etc., introduces the resilience property of grid power which is able to adapt by absorbing any anomaly that jeopardizes the integrity and electrical service safety.
