Tutorial 4: Network pricing for smarter electricity distribution networks
Increased operational efficiency and growing low carbon technologies in electricity distribution networks challenges the status quo in network pricing methodologies.
These methodologies largely reflect the passive nature of the traditional distribution system with steady load growth and limited active network and customer devices.
The smarter distribution networks have increased operational intelligence but have to accommodate growing and uncertain electric transport and heat load.
This tutorial introduces the current practice in network pricing in the UK, Germany, Brazil and United States their impact to traditional and new network customers, and improvements made for the distribution networks to accommodate low carbon technologies swiftly and cheaply.
