Abstract

The progressive integration of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) at distribution level is reshaping the role of distribution networks in the power system operation. Controllable loads, renewable sources, and storage systems can be managed from grid operators to provide services to the electrical grid. Nevertheless, a reliable and effective network control requires coordinated and optimized actions among transmission (TSO) and distribution (DSO) system operators. Assuming a shared balancing responsibility coordination model, the DSO will be called during the daily power system operation to dispatch optimally all control resources at distribution level in order to fulfil power exchange programs scheduled by the TSO. The feasibility of the application of a distribution optimal power flow routine in the assumed TSO-DSO coordination framework is studied through simulations on a detailed representation of an Italian MV urban distribution grid.
