Unified LINK-based holistic architecture
The unified LINK-based holistic architecture of power systems is an architecture in which all relevant component of power systems like:
- Electricity producer (regardless of technology or size, e.g. big power plants, distributed generations, etc.)
- Electricity storage (regardless of technology or size, e.g. pumped power plants, batteries, gas systems, etc.)
- Electricity grid (regardless of voltage level, e.g. high-, medium- and low voltage grid)
- Electricity market
are merged into one single structure. It unifies all interactions within the power system itself and between it and market thus creating the possibility to harmonize them. The unified LINK-based holistic architecture is shown below.
