Abstract

Active Network Management (ANM) schemes are
providing the communications and control infrastructure
to allow the integration of energy storage and flexible
demand in distribution networks. These technologies can
be characterised as intertemporal in that their operation
at different points in time is linked. This paper provides a
discussion of the issues created when optimising an ANM
scheme containing intertemporal energy technologies. A
technique called Dynamic Optimal Power Flow is
discussed and a case study is presented. The requirement
to use forecasts of renewable energy resources such as
wind power is discussed together with the issues that this
creates.
