A Modelling Tool for Distribution Networks to Demonstrate Smart Grid Solutions

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The increased deployment of low carbon technologies in power distribution networks, particularly at the distribution level, is expected to cause significant problems to network operation unless existing networks are appropriately adapted and actively controlled as part of a smart grid. This paper describes the development of a modelling tool to examine Smart Grid solutions to a number of issues affecting low voltage power distribution networks. Use of the tool in the context of transformer overload, line overvoltage, active load control, Grid storage and Black Start analysis is examined.
