The Demonstration Project Virtual Power Plant Neckar-Alb is constructing a Virtual Power Plant (VPP) demonstration site at the Reutlingen University campus. The VPP demonstrator integrates a heterogeneous set of distributed energy resources (DERs) which are connected to control infrastructure and an energy management system. This paper describes the components and the architecture of the demonstrator and presents strategies for demonstration of multiple optimization and control systems with different control paradigms.
