GRIP - Grids with intelligent periphery: Control architectures for Grid2050^π
A distributed control and coordination architecture for integrating inherently variable and uncertain generation is presented. The key idea is to distribute the intelligence into the periphery of the grid. This will allow coordination of generation, storage, and adjustable demand on the distribution side of the system and thus reduce the need to build new transmission facilities to accommodate large amounts of renewable generation.
