Our interest in the theory and practicalities of distribution system planning have been aroused by recent discussions with distribution network operators in the U.K. and by more general work on the requirements for power system planning methodologies for the twenty-first century. Specific note is made of distributed generation, which presents substantial challenges for distribution system planners and has been the focus for a study of the changing needs of distribution planning.
