Efficient integration of distributed renewable generation into a reliable single entity in technical and commercial terms is one of key issues for successful realization of smart-grids. The novel concept of virtual power plants (VPP) emerges to be promising response to these needs. ICT is enabling technology for VPP implementation. An efficient monitoring and control system coupled with appropriate communication structure must be designed in a scalable and modular way so that full interoperability among components of the system is achieved. On top of that, control center applications take care of power flow optimization (production, consumption, ancillary services etc.) and high-level applications (e.g. energy trading, demand side management etc.). In this work we focus on functional requirements for realization of such concept by means of embedded systems.
