The increasing uptake of Distributed Energy Resources and advancement in blockchain technology has led to the growth in interest in the peer-to-peer (P2P) based energy trading. However, there has been a lack of consideration how these trades may affect the network operation, in particular in networks that apply Active Network Management using Last-in-First-out (LIFO) access rules, such as in the UK. This paper presents a novel application of Optimal Power Flow that manages the P2P trading whilst optimising legacy DGs under a LIFO access agreement. Analysis show that under such arrangements, and in combination with autonomous P2P trading, lower priority DGs are vulnerable to excessive curtailment levels.
