WG C6.19 Planning and optimization methods for active distribution systems

The WG aims at addressing the following issues:
  • Survey on the state of the art on planning for active distribution systems
  • Requirements of planning methodologies (a questionnaire will be sent to distribution companies and universities)
  • Identification of short, medium, and long term models for active distribution planning (e.g., technical models, economic and market models)
  • Reliability models of active distribution systems
  • Algorithms for active distribution system expansion/upgrade planning suitable to different scenarios and regulatory frameworks. Methods and tools allow optimal DES (distributed energy storage) and DG sizing and siting as well design and integration of microgrids and multi-microgrids
