Abstract-- In the coming decade a strong trend
towards distributed electricity generation (micro-
generation) is expected. Micro-generators are small
appliances that generate electricity (and heat) at the
kilowatt level, which allows them to be installed in
households. By combining a group of micro-generators,
a Virtual Power Plant can be formed. The electricity
market/network requires a VPP control system to be
fast, scalable and reliable. It should be able to adjust
the production quickly, handle in the order of millions
of micro-generators and it should ensure the required
production is really produced by the fleet of micro-
generators.
When using micro Combined Heat and Power micro-
