Due to the increasing volatile feed-in of decentralized energy plants into the distribution network level, network bottlenecks in the high and medium voltage range are increasingly occurring, which lead to a growing need for network expansion. New possibilities to increase the utilization of existing networks arise from the use of impedance controllers for power flow control in high voltage. In order to develop a targeted and reactive congestion management, a coordination of different intervention possibilities in the network is necessary. The aim of the research project "Impedance Controllers and Decentralized Congestion Management for Autonomous Power Flow Coordination" (IDEAL) is the development of an autonomous multi-agent system for optimized power flow coordination with impedance controllers for the high voltage level under consideration of available flexibilities from the medium voltage. A network state estimation is performed to determine the availability of the flexibilities of subordinate network levels. The practical applicability of the system is to be demonstrated on a functional model with a power hardware-in-the-loop real-time simulation in the Smart Grid Technology Lab. Finally, the network state estimation will be validated by a field test in real medium-voltage networks.
