Active Network Management (ANM) schemes are providing the communications and control infrastructure to allow the integration of energy storage and flexible demand in distribution networks. These technologies can be characterised as intertemporal in that their operation at different points in time is linked. This paper provides a discussion of the issues created when optimising an ANM scheme containing intertemporal energy technologies. A technique called Dynamic Optimal Power Flow is discussed and a case study is presented. The requirement to use forecasts of renewable energy resources such as wind power is discussed together with the issues that this creates.
