Abstract

Recently, Electricity North West Limited (ENWL), one of the UK Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) has proposed a Demand Side Response (DSR) based scheme for reducing social costs (e.g., power losses), increasing distribution network capacity, and postponing (or even avoiding) future network reinforcements in the presence of uncertainty. This solution, named 'Capacity to Customers' (C2C), consists of pushing the network limits beyond traditional planning standards that apply under contingency situation by resorting to temporary customer disconnection after a fault occurs. The assessment of the C2C solution (and other network solutions) should be consistent with the cost benefit analysis (C..
