As INTERPRETER is implementing experimentations within pilot sites, harmonized data collection protocol has been established in a confidential report. The data collection protocol aims on coordinating the time-consuming process of the compilation of very diverse and disperse data records, which will be needed for validation of all software tools developed withing INTERPERTER. A main concern is to avoid the potential risk of company privacy policies, hindering data collection.

This report highlights 3 main topics:

  • Data available at the different pilots (closely related to D3.1)
  • Attention necessary towards privacy issues (GDPR)
  • Data collection protocol (data formats at each pilot)

The data availability analysis identified several differences between the 3 pilots:

DTU is the most advanced pilot with all the required characteristics for the project available. It can provide a perfect knowledge of their grid: either in terms of asset, topology or real-time data with recordings done every minute.

Cuerva can also provide a pretty accurate description of their network. Smart meters have been set up for more than 3 years, providing robust historical data. Readings have a resolution of 1 hour and record active and reactive power.

The network description from Ores will be less accurate as connection lines to customers (smart meter) are unknown (usually a few meters). The installation is starting this summer, but they will be recording most necessary data (P, Q, V, I) on a 15-min basis.
