Abstract. The increasing pervasion of information and communication technology (ICT) in energy systems allows for the development of new control concepts on all voltage levels. In the distribution grid, this development is accompanied by a still increasing penetration with distributed energy resources like photovoltaic (PV) plants, wind turbines or small scale combined heat and power (CHP) plants. Combined with shiftable loads and electrical storage, these energy units set up a new flexibility potential in the distribution grid that can be tapped with ICT-based control following the long-term goal of substituting conventional power generation. In this contribution, we propose an architectural model and algorithms for the self-organization of these distributed energy units within dynamic virtual power plants (DVPP) along with first results from a feasibility study of the integrated process chain from market-driven DVPP formation to product delivery.
