The expansion of photovoltaic systems as well as heat pumps and charging stations for electric vehicles are creating new challenges for low-voltage grids, as peaks in load and generation can lead to grid congestions. A promising approach to these challenges is the use of flexibility from various flexibility options to prevent these grid congestions. In this paper a system for flexibility-based grid congestion management is presented. Furthermore in this paper, different flexibility options are compared in terms of availability and cost to provide flexibility for grid congestion management.
