@INVADEH2020 : D4.2 INVADE architecture of pilots is part of the WP4 (Overall INVADE architecture), which main objectives are to design the general INVADE system architecture and the software architecture of the Flexibility Cloud as a base for its implementation. In particular, this deliverable adapts the generic INVADE architecture described in D4.1 to pilots and describes their specific technical characteristics, components and protocols. The document describes the flexibility services, sources and roles that then are identified and defined for each of the pilots. As an example, Table 1 shows the flexibility services that will be implemented in each pilot. The component and communication SGAM layers are also defined for all the pilot sites. The architecture of pilots described in this document is reviewed and further developed in a second implementation phase in later task.

@INVADEH2020 : Lithium-ion batteries are used in a wide range of applications. Lifetime of lithium-ion batteries is heavily impacted by the load profile and operating conditions. INVADE deliverable 6.3 presents a survey of the battery ageing and health diagnostics and provides tools for the INVADE pilots’ battery diagnostics. Deliverable also explores the potential second life use cases and recycling aspects. You can find D6.3 here: ( - 2 weeks ago)

@INVADEH2020 : INVADE partner badenova AG & Co. KG presented the EU project at “Forum for Innovation & Efficiency” in Offenburg (Germany) on the 9th to 11th of April 2019. More than 100 participants from industry, politics and administration were present. Dr. Radensleben, CEO of badenova, opened the convention together with high ranking members of the ministry of economy. The newly installed Redox-Flow-Battery was presented. It’s a grid friendly storage system relieving a weak grid feeder from high PV-production energy flows during daytime by shifting energy transport to nighttime. This means expensive grid enforcement is avoided and the integration of more renewable energies in this region is enabled. In addition, the device improves by a locally operated algorithm voltage quality in this grid segment. Further, the opportunities created by connecting private households providing PV-systems, PV-batteries as well as controllable loads as EV chargers were presented. "A very strong emphasis was laid on business models arising from these new approaches for commercial customers as wells as other utilities," says Dr. Malte C. Thoma, who presented the INVADE project to the participants. ( - 1 month ago)
