Internationally the electricity supply industry has experienced changes in the way that energy is supplied. In recent years this has seen an increasing number of distributed energy sources appearing on the grid. As this change continues there will be a move from ¿many loads-few sources¿ to the new concept of ¿many loads-many sources¿. This phenomenon has been termed as Highly Distributed Power System (HDPS) concept. In this paper the particular aspects of a HDPS are described and the difference between traditional dispatching systems and new dispatching system for HDPS are discussed. The new dispatching system will utilise concepts from Multi-State System (MSS) concepts as a basis. MSS will be briefly explained and finally, the potential alternative approaches have been discussed.
