Congestions are becoming a significant issue with an increasing number of occurrences in distribution networks due to the growing penetration of distributed generation and the expected development of electric mobility. Fair congestion management (CM) policies and prices require proper indices of congested areas and contributions of customer to congestions.

Abstract

Congestions are becoming a significant issue with an increasing number of occurrences in distribution networks due to the growing penetration of distributed generation and the expected development of electric mobility. Fair congestion management (CM) policies and prices require proper indices of congested areas and contributions of customer to congestions. This paper presents spatial and temporal indices for rapidly recognizing the seriousness of congestions from the perspectives of both magnitude violation and duration to prioritize the affected areas where CM procedures should be primarily activated. Besides, indices are presented which describe the contributions of customers to the congestions. Simulation tests on IEEE 123-bus and Australian 23-bus low-voltage distribution test feeders illustrate the calculation and capabilities of the proposed indices in balanced and unbalanced systems.
