Challenge and objective

  • More variability and new uncertainties due to e.g. variable distributed generation and electrification of transport, together with new active grid operation technologies, call for new planning methodologies.

Work performed

  • Synthesis of previously performed review of needs and gaps and workshop with project partners.
  • Adaptation and extension of traditional grid planning framework in the Norwegian handbook on power system planning (Planboka) and active distribution grid planning framework by CIGRE WG C6.19.

Significant results

  • A framework explicitly accounting for active grid planning measures, structured in seven steps.
  • Overview and examples of relevant methodology that can be incorporated at different grid levels (MV, LV) for each of the steps.

Impact for distribution system innovation

  • Allows for active grid measures and related technologies to be considered more consistently in distribution system development.
