Inertia Estimation

The work on the inertia estimation developed in the project consists of the development of the inertia estimation algorithm and the development of a scheduling tool for the optimal allocation of virtual inertia. These tools can be provided to the grid operators to perform an initial estimation of the value of inertia for a portion of the grid and then to calculate the optimal allocation of virtual inertia to increase the overall inertia of the system. The proposed tools have been tested in a simulation environment and developed as services for the edgeFLEX architecture, integrating the interface with the MQTT broker. The two algorithms could not be tested further in the field given the small size of the grid used for the field trials, which, together with the small power generation values involved, could not create any relevant conditions for the inertia estimation and allocation tools to be tested.
