Abstract: On account of the profound change process in electric power generation, transmission and distribution a lot of activities are started to plan, to build up and to operate smart distribution grids. Experiences from laboratory test set-ups are well known, experiences from public used smart grids are actually published only a little. Therefore there are numerous questions how to adapt the smart grid characteristics to the special boundary conditions of a given grid region and which divergences must be considered between planning and operation. This paper describes some key experiences in planning, building up and operating a smart grid for the German isle of Pellworm. It takes into account the first lessons learned from the operation of this smart grid.

Keywords: Smart region, hybrid power plant, storage elements, flexible loads, adjustable transformer substation, energy management system, demand side management
