    Increasing amount of distributed energy resources necessitates more flexibility a t t he distribution network level. One option to attain this flexibility i s b y aggregation o f these resources within microgrids and further supervisory control of the latter in active network management. Among other reasons preventing their realization, these flexibility services I ack standardized information and communication technology solution. This study assesses the required communication, information, and functional competences for such services and describes them by means of a use case modeling on smart grid architecture model planes. Specifically, t he paper focuses o nan information exchange built on the basis of web application programming interface called Smart API. The results of the study present a smart grid architecture that would enable real-time control of microgrid resources in active network management through flexibility market services.
