Assessment of Distributed Generation Capacity Mixture for Hybrid Benefits
MetadataShow full item record
The distributed generation (DG) mixture in an active distribution network can provide different levels of network benefits and benefits external to the network. This paper investigates this problem in detail and proposes an approach to assess the DG mixture for hybrid benefits through the sequential simulation of optimized samples. A case study is performed incorporating Wind and PV generation as intermittent DG, diesels, their life-cycle costs (LCCs), and contribution to greenhouse-gas (GHG) abatement. Results suggest that specific operating conditions in a network can dominate the DG mixture and deliver the combined benefits. Wind and diesel hybrid operation can be the most beneficial DG mixture in an active distribution network compared to any other DG combination with current costing structure.
