Distribution Grid Robust Operation under Forecast Uncertainties with Flexibility Estimation from Low Voltage Grids using a Monitoring and Control Equipment [article]

Ankur Majumdar, Omid Alizadeh-Mousavi
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Due to increased penetration of renewable resources in the distribution grid, the distribution system operator (DSO) faces increased challenges to maintain security and quality of supply.  ...  Moreover, the variability of intermittent resources affects the flexibility estimation methodology, and the DSO operation must be robust to the changes in generation or demand outputs.  ...  Nevertheless, with more and more decentralised resources being connected at the LV grid, the DSOs require more visibility and estimation of their flexibility potential at the LV grids.  ...
