Abstract

This letter presents the outcomes of a trial of an active network management (ANM) scheme on part of the North-Scotland electricity network. The ANM scheme has as its goal the facilitation of increased connections of distributed generation (DG) from renewable resources on the Orkney Isles. The ANM scheme is the first multigenerator application of ANM at distribution level in the U.K. The ANM scheme is briefly discussed prior to the trial of the ANM scheme being introduced. The implications of the trial for full ANM roll-out are discussed. The results of the trial of the ANM scheme are of direct relevance to those working in the areas of ANM, smart grids, and advanced distribution automation. The results confirm that wind farms can be controlled within the thermal constraints of a distribution network subject. to certain operating margin considerations.
