Abstract

The Active Network Management (ANM) scheme to be
employed on Shetland is a key component of the
Northern Isles New Energy Solutions (NINES) concept.
The NINES project integrates energy storage, Domestic
Demand Side Management (DDSM) and renewable
generation onto an islanded grid. Previous work has
presented the design of the ANM scheme to manage the
various components within constraints and to maintain
system stability. This paper focuses on defining the
future potential of Shetland’s ANM scheme to improve
network access for onshore wind generation and reduce
the island’s reliance on fossil fuel generation. A Multi-
Objective System Development Optimisation (MOSDO)
model has been developed to carry out this study. The
model creates future system configurations with varying
penetrations and locations of DDSM, energy storage
and onshore wind generation. The most desirable
system configurations, according to a multi-objective
analysis, are investigated to identify the potential
operational and economic impacts of the ANM scheme
and the individual components.
