    Abstract

    Increased levels of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and their participation in provision of Ancillary Services (AS) at both transmission and distribution levels, call for a more advanced dispatching management of distribution networks to transform distribution from a “passive” into an “active” system. Moreover, new market architectures must be developed to enable participation of DERs in energy and AS markets. New operational and trading arrangements will also affect the interface between transmission and distribution networks, which will have to be managed in a coordinated manner between TSOs and DSOs in order to ensure the highest efficiency, effectiveness and security.
