The aim of this paper is to introduce implementation of smart grid technologies in Green Campus Smart Grid (GCSG) project in Lappeenranta University of Technology. The main objectives of the GCSG project are to realise a fully functional smart grid environment, to demonstrate the operation of different smart grid functionalities and to provide platform for further research and development of smart grid systems. The GCSG consists of DG-units (Distributed Generation), energy storages, demand control system and energy storage control system. Furthermore, the system comprises a communication based intelligent protection system for safe island operation. All the components of the GCSG system interact with each other, end-users and external systems through common interfaces, allowing for instance intelligent charging and V2G-operation (Vehicle to Grid) of compatible electric vehicles. The core of the system control is an Energy Management System (EMS). Therefore, the Green Campus project offers an open research platform for several key functionalities of the smart grid environment.
