The integration of Distributed Generation (DG) based on renewable sources in the Smart Grids (SGs) is considered a challenging task because of the problems arising for the intermittent nature of the sources (e.g. wind or sun), only partly predictable.

This chapter proposes an Energy Management System for SGs using Optimal Power Flow and integrating the demand side man- agement mechanism and the active management schemes for the optimization of a SG in a competitive power market.

Abstract

The integration of Distributed Generation (DG) based on renewable sources in the Smart Grids (SGs) is considered a challenging task because of the problems arising for the intermittent nature of the sources (e.g. wind or sun), only partly predictable. Another important issue concerning the design of SGs is how to support the consumers’ participation in the electricity market minimizing the costs of the global energy consumption. This chapter proposes an Energy Management System for SGs using Optimal Power Flow and integrating the demand side man- agement mechanism and the active management schemes for the optimization of a SG in a competitive power market. The idea is that they can achieve a better inte- gration of different types of DG improving flexibility while reducing the costs of energy for customers. The efficiency of the proposed technique is verified on a 19- bus 11 kV distribution network.
