Abstract / Description of output

The worldwide capacity of renewable energy generation is set to increase significantly. With the resource dictating that much of this new plant connect to distribution networks a range of technical and economic issues arise. This paper briefly reviews the technical problems associated with the connection of renewable energy at distribution-level and the means of integrating renewables available at present and in the near future. Further, it examines the issues surrounding current connection practices in terms of the potential for inadvertently limiting network capability to absorb new renewable energy. Finally, it demonstrates the use of optimal power flow techniques that could assist in maximising renewable generation capacity in the electricity market.
