Abstract / Description of output

Worldwide interest in renewable energy combined with technology advances has increased the connection of intermittent distributed generation to distribution networks. To allow maximum penetration of such developments without compromising the normal operation of the network requires several technical issues to be assessed. In this context, active management of the network, i.e., the integration of assets and network participants through the real-time use of control and communication systems, will play a major role. This paper proposes a multi-period steady-state analysis for maximising the connection of intermittent distributed generation through an optimal power flow-based technique adapted for active network management. A medium voltage distribution network is analysed considering different loading levels and discretised wind power outputs over a year. Results are presented and discussed.
