As the power system grows more complex and active, equivalent models have become a solution for modelling parts of the network that have limited observability or are confidential or too complex to simulate otherwise. In the past decade, this topic has also made its way to distribution networks because of its transition towards an active network,...

This thesis investigates the integration of algorithm unrolling and genetic algorithms (GA) for optimizing pump scheduling in water distribution systems (WDS), a critical component for ensuring energy-efficient water delivery. In the context of modern civilization’s reliance on clean, affordable water for diverse uses, the operation of a WDS,...

Electrification of energy end-uses brings an increasing load on electric distribution grids with load peaks that can cause network congestion. However, many new end-uses like electric vehicles, heat pumps, and electrified industrial processes have some flexibility to move their power consumption away from peak times. Congestion management...

Urbanization increases the land surface temperature through surface mineralization, adversely affecting vegetation and enhancing the urban heat island (UHI) effect. Global climate change has intensified this warming effect with more frequent and intense heatwaves during hot seasons. While these transformations influence soil temperature,...

Water distribution networks (WDNs) provide drinking water to urban and rural consumers through a network of pipes that transport water from reservoirs to junctions. Water utilities rely on tools such as EPANET to simulate and analyse the performance of water distribution networks (WDNs). EPANET solves the flow continuity and headloss equations...

The Dutch government is targeting substantial growth within the heating sector, with ambitions to double the number of sustainable heat connections for households by 2030 – from 0.5 to 1 million – and eventually reaching 2.5 million connections by 2050. The proposed institutional design outlined in the new Heat Act, also known as the "Wet...

A photovoltaic (PV)-rich low-voltage (LV) distribution network poses a limit on the export power of PVs due to the voltage magnitude constraints. By defining a customer export limit, switching off the PV inverters can be avoided, and thus reducing power curtailment. Based on this, this paper proposes a mixed-integer nonlinear programming (MINLP)...

Monitoring, protection, and control processes are becoming more complex as distributed energy resources (DERs) penetrate distribution networks (DNs). This is due to the inherent nature of power DNs and the bi-directional flow of current from various sources to the loads. To improve the system’s situational awareness, the grid dynamics of the...

The increasing integration of distributed energy resources such as photovoltaic (PV) systems into distribution networks introduces intermittent and variable power, leading to high voltage fluctuations. High PV integration can also result in increased terminal voltage of the network during periods of high PV generation and low load consumption...

Water distribution networks (WDNs) require large capital investment and ongoing operational costs, resulting in their optimisation being a highly researched field. Despite the benefits tanks bring to networks, most optimisation models omit them as decision variables due to the complexity they can introduce to heuristic approaches. This paper...

This paper presents a rules-based integrated fault detection, classification and section identification (I-FDCSI) method for real distribution networks (DN) using micro-phasor measurement units ((Formula presented.) PMUs). The proposed method utilizes the high-resolution synchronized realistic measurements from the strategically installed ...

The integration of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) in distribution networks comes with challenges, like power quality concerns, but also opens up new opportunities, e.g., DERs can offer competitive energy prices for final users by leveraging time arbitrage. A suitable method to fully exploit such opportunities is to compute the optimal...

The distribution network (DN) reconfiguration is a well-known optimal power flow (OPF) problem. However, with the transition of DN from 'passive' to 'active', new technical challenges arise in DN reconfiguration. This article addresses two key issues in this regard. Firstly, the integration of local renewable generation (LRG) introduces...

As the penetration of Converter-Interfaced Dis-tributed Renewable Energy Sources (CI-DRES) increases, several problems are revealed in electric power systems, e.g., power quality issues, reverse power flows and frequency instability. A solution to tackle these issues is the mitigation of high CI-DRES active power ramp-rates (RRs) by utilizing...

Power electronic interfaced devices progressively enable the increasing provision of flexible operational actions in distribution networks. The feasible flexibility these devices can effectively provide requires estimation and quantification so the network operators can plan operations close to real- time. Existing approaches estimating the...

Increasing peaks from high-power loads such as EVs and heat pumps lead to congestion of electric distribution grids. The inherent flexibility of these loads could be used to resolve congestion events. Possible options for this are smart network tariffs, market-based approaches, and direct control of flexible loads by the network operator. In...

This paper proposes a multi-level segmented tariff to encourage consumers to provide demand response using a battery. The aim of the tariff is to (i) properly reflect consumers’ contribution to the distribution grid cost while ensuring cost recovery for the distribution network operator and (ii) to provide consumers with a financial incentive to...

The unbalanced power between positive and negative poles in a bipolar DC distribution network (DC-DN) generates an unbalanced current at the neutral line, which enlarges the power losses of the system and the voltage deviation of DC loads. An unbalanced power suppression strategy based on a series-parallel power flow controller (SP-PFC) is...
