The TSO-DSO coordination schemes proposed by SmartNet have been tested by means of dedicated simulations aimed at realistically reproducing the behavior of the electrical system and of the involved actors in hypothetical scenarios (expected 2030 situation of Italy, Denmark and Spain). The present report describes the software platform of the simulator which has been completely developed by the SmartNet team on the basis of the theoretical concepts in terms of aggregation/disaggregation, TSO-DSO interactions and responsibilities, market clearing strategies. Numerous settings can be set in order to simulate arbitrary market and bidding dynamics (market frequency, latency, time horizon).The document describes in detail the simulation blocks that have been developed by the SmartNet team, illustrating the role of the main functions, the variables used to make interaction among different layers, as well as the necessary settings for the setup of simulation platform.
