A procedure for the automatic scheduling of distributed energy resources in medium voltage networks

The paper presents the main characteristics of a centralized two-stage scheduler designed for the integration in the Distribution Management System (DMS) under development in the framework of an Italian "Smart Grid" Project. The paper first reviews the trends in the automation of power distribution networks, and then describes the two-stage scheduler and its application to typical Italian urban and rural distribution feeders.
