Distribution system complexity is increasing mainly due to technological innovation, renewable distributed generation and responsive loads. This complexity makes difficult the monitoring, control and operation of distribution networks for distribution network operators, decision-makers, investors and etc.
Operation of Distributed Energy Resources in Smart Distribution Networks defines these barriers and challenges of smart distribution networks and ultimately proposes optimal solutions for addressing them.
Considering the concept of smart distribution systems as an important part of future electrical power systems to improve the local flexibility and reliability of electrical systems this volume carefully defines the concept as a radial network with a cluster of distributed energy generations, various types of loads, and energy storage systems.
In addition, smart distribution networks integrated with renewable sources can be a proper solution to the raised energy crises and environmental problems. However, huge penetration of distributed energy resources and the intermittent nature of renewable generations may put at risk the system operation.
This book seeks to find, analyze and introduce features and problems of smart distribution networks from different aspects.
- Integrates different types of elements including electrical vehicles, demand response programs, and various renewable energy sources in distribution networks
- Proposes optimal operational models for short term performance and scheduling of distribution network
- Discusses the uncertainties of renewable resources and intermittent load in decision making of distribution networks
