8. A method of determining the topology of an aggregated distributed energy resources system (“DERs system”), the DERs system having a plurality of assets, at least one of the assets being a controllable asset, the method comprising:
injecting a test power signal at a given frequency from at least one of the controllable assets into the DERs system;
measuring the voltage at each of the plurality of assets after injecting the test power signal;
determining the magnitude of perturbation of the voltage at the given frequency for each of the plurality of assets;
constructing the topology of DERs system as a function of the differences of the magnitude of perturbations of each of the plurality of assets; and
controlling at least one of the controllable assets as a function of at least the constructed topology.
