Abstract

The increasing demand on the UK’s electricity network has seen a drive to develop intelligent active network management (ANM) systems. The current passive arrangement of the distribution network is no longer appropriate as the penetration of distributed generation (DG) increasing and active networks provide a significant cost deferral mechanism to network reinforcements. Alongside ANM development, minimisation of losses is being incentivised through the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) as network inefficiencies not only have implications but contribute to carbon emissions. This paper presents an ANM system that incorporates an algorithm for the minimisation of losses which is demonstrated on a 300-bus test network.
