Abstract

Increasing popularity of renewable and Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and introduction of smart meters are changing the way electricity distribution grids have been operated. The stochastic nature of renewable sources adds new challenges to distribution grid operations. Communities, which are defined as groups of individual customers that utilise renewable energy sources, are especially impacted by these challenges due to their lack of scale and know-how. In this thesis, we focus on PV-rich communities that have a number of end-users equipped with rooftop photovoltaic (PV) panels without any local storage. For such PV-rich communities, it would be beneficial to model and analyse the stat..
