Active distribution network
Considerable amount of renewable energy in Europe represents distributed generation (DG). One of the main barriers for the penetration of DG at distribution network level is the complexity of the interconnection of DG. The overall aim of the ADINE-project is to develop, demonstrate and validate a new Active Network Management (ANM) method of distribution network including DG and enabling solutions to support it. The enabling solutions operate as active components in managing the network allowing easier interconnection of DG units.
The solutions cover protection, voltage and reactive power control and planning and information systems of networks. As the result ANM is increasing the security of distribution grids, improving the stability of the grid in fault situations and enhancing the optimal management of network. This adds value at European level by increasing the potential for renewable energy and by enabling more efficient management of distribution network assets for network owners.
