Data-driven Control Design Schemes in Active Distribution Grids: Capabilities and Challenges

Today, system operators rely on local control of distributed energy resources (DERs), such as photovoltaic units, wind turbines and batteries, to increase operational flexibility. These schemes offer a communication-free, robust, cheap, but rather …

TDNetGen: An Open-Source, Parametrizable, Large-Scale, Transmission, and Distribution Test System

In this paper, an open-source MATLAB toolbox is presented that is able to generate synthetic, combined transmission, and distribution network models. These can be used to analyse the interactions between transmission and multiple distribution …

Contribution of Distribution Network Control to Voltage Stability: A Case Study

A case study dealing with long-term voltage instability in systems hosting active distribution networks (DN) is reported in this paper. It anticipates future situations with high penetration of dispersed generation (DG), where the latter are used to …

Hybrid approach for planning and operating active distribution grids

This paper investigates the planning and operational processes of modern distribution networks hosting distributed energy resources (DERs). While in the past the two aspects have been distinct, a methodology is proposed in this paper to co-optimise …
