    Abstract

    Electrification of heat and transport along with significant increases in distributed energy resources pose challenges for distribution network operators (DNOs) as they evolve into distribution system operators (DSOs) . Issues may include capacity constraints, voltage excursions, lower supply security and reduced power quality . A method of addressing these matters whilst unlocking capacity is therefore required.
