Ever increasing shares of intermittent RES in present and future power systems pose new challenges with regard to operation, particularly balance, frequency and voltage stability. Towards effective solutions, the ELECTRA IRP project has developed a novel structure for future power systems operation, by dividing them in a number of Cells, constituting so a Web-of-Cells, and equipped with controllers addressing operation objectives. This paper deals with the Frequency Containment Control use case and, in particular, its implementation in the context of operation constraints imposed by different system conditions. To this end, a design method based on fuzzy logic for avoiding conflicts caused from these conditions or multiple control loops implemented on the same resource is proposed. Simulation results for various selected scenarios and controllers show the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
