Distributed energy resourcesProject evolve DER Project
The report presents on how dynamic operating envelopes can increase the hosting capacity for households with residential PV solar systems without breaching physical or operational network limits.
We are currently witnessing the increasing deployment of DER including distributed solar PV, residential and suburb scale battery storage, electric vehicles and controllable loads. Overwhelmingly, these DER resources are being installed in the low and medium voltage segments of electricity distribution networks. These DER assets can contribute to energy reliability and energy security through their participation in markets for energy and ancillary services. However, without appropriate co-ordination DER can in result in dynamic two- way flows of energy that threaten the physical or operational limits of electricity distribution networks.
