Abstract

The local environmental concerns and the decarbonization process favored by European and national policymakers drive the spread of new technologies, such as electric heating/cooling systems, residential photovoltaic generators, and electric mobility. Since these new equipment are mostly connected to the MV and LV levels of the electricity network, their widespread implementation will substantially impact electric distribution systems planning an operation. The analysis of future development scenarios and the impact of new control techniques are, therefore, preparatory for the evolution of the planning and operation of electric networks, specifically the distribution networks. The simulations reported in this paper integrates the network data, including a georeferenced description of the distribution network, with external public databases information. Thanks to the proposed approach, the impact of the new equipment can be studied considering different scenario hypotheses investigating the evolution of the distribution network in detail. In particular, the methodology is applied to the distribution network of Brescia, a city in Northern Italy.
