A steadily growing share of renewable energies with fluctuating and decentralized generation as well as rising peak loads require novel solutions to ensure the reliability of electricity supply. More specifically, grid stability is endangered by equally relevant line constraints and battery capacity limits. In this light, energy packet-based dispatching with power signal dual modulation has recently been introduced as an innovative solution. However, this approach assumes a central synchronicity provision unit for energy packet (EP) dispatching. To overcome this assumption, the present article's main contribution is a design of an EP receiver which recovers the required synchronicity information directly from the received signal itself. Key implementation aspects are discussed in detail. By means of a direct current (DC) grid example, simulation results show the performance and applicability of the proposed novel receiver for packet-based energy dispatching.
