Published on

Joint presentation with SP Energy Networks (SPEN) at CIGRE conference, Belgium, with the full title, "Actively Managing Distribution Connected Generation Feeding Into Distribution and Transmission Constraints". The presentation used SPEN's Accelerating Renewable Connections project as a case study and looked at the implementation of an Active Network Management scheme supplied by Smarter Grid Solutions.

The conference theme was "Innovation for secure and efficient transmission grids".

CIGRE Belgium presentation on Actively Managing Distribution Connected Generation

  1. 1. v Brussels Conference 12-13 March 2014 - 1 - CIGREBELGIUM2014Conference ACTIVELY MANAGING DISTRIBUTION CONNECTED GENERATION FEEDING INTO DISTRIBUTION AND TRANSMISSION CONTRAINTS Session 1B / R Anderson & A Gooding / United Kingdom
  2. 2. v Brussels Conference 12-13 March 2014 - 2 - CIGREBELGIUM2014Conference Iberdrola at a Glance Presence in 40 countries worldwide
  3. 3. v Brussels Conference 12-13 March 2014 - 3 - CIGREBELGIUM2014Conference SP Energy Networks Overview • Distribution Assets - 3.5m connected customers - 16% of annual electricity bill - Host 28% of UK’s distributed renewable generation but only 14% of customer base • Transmission Assets (Scotland) - 4% of annual electricity bill - 56% of Scotland’s transmission connected renewable generation
  4. 4. v Brussels Conference 12-13 March 2014 - 4 - CIGREBELGIUM2014Conference Agenda • Background • The Problem • The Solution

  6. 6. v Brussels Conference 12-13 March 2014 - 6 - CIGREBELGIUM2014Conference Problem
  7. 7. v Brussels Conference 12-13 March 2014 - 7 - CIGREBELGIUM2014Conference The Problem • Exporting Grid Supply Point • Multiple issues during N-1 Contingencies • High cost connection charges as a consequence of thermal constraints • High cost connection charges as a consequence of voltage rise constraints • The impact of Small Scale Generation on the Exporting GSP

  12. 12. v Brussels Conference 12-13 March 2014 - 12 - CIGREBELGIUM2014Conference The Solution Requirements for an Actively Managed Network: • Operate autonomously • Hard real time • End to end determinism • State driven logic • Constant idling rather then event initiated • Predictable and repeatedly able to handle relationships between multiple devices and multiple constraints
  13. 13. v Brussels Conference 12-13 March 2014 - 13 - CIGREBELGIUM2014Conference The Solution – A New Layer

  15. 15. v Brussels Conference 12-13 March 2014 - 15 - CIGREBELGIUM2014Conference The Solution Commercial Arrangements: • Non-Firm connection agreements - Estimation of annual curtailment - No compensation for curtailment (Up front benefit banked!) • Managing constraints across boundaries - Agreement with the TNO and TSO to manage constraints created by distribution connected generation • Investigating new community connection to encourage local demand or storage interaction
