Abstract

Connection of Distributed Generation brings about a need to manage operation of distribution networks in a way that is more active. In order to allow for this change, DNOs need to devise strategies of how to manage generator outputs so to facilitate connection of renewable resources and maximize use of network assets. The paper will look into different techniques that allow for this type of operation and analyze possible directions of transitions form current operation strategies used in active power flow management, towards possible new approaches.
