Abstract

The necessity of developing alternatives to fossil combustibles as energy sources is increasingly leading towards non-conventional, renewable and distributed generation systems. To manage the transition from the present centralized grid to the future active systems consisting of multiple bi-directional energy clients it is necessary to extend the measurement systems to LV grids. The overall objective of this work is to install real-time measuring devices at a few grid locations, and use distribution state estimation techniques to implement active network management techniques on an experimental 100-kVA micro-grid.
