Distributed Energy Resources for Power Systems and Rural Areas

About this Research Topic

The increase in energy consumption in recent years has generated problems in power systems and in the environment. Electrical systems must face a growing demand, and this entails problems in generation, transmission systems, and so on. From an environmental point of view, the intensive use of fossil fuel energy resources has a direct impact on the environment and an excessive increase in greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, electric supply in rural areas, maybe isolated from the grid, should be considered to increase reliability and continuity of supply in these systems. Rational use of energy and energy production with renewable sources can help alleviate those problems. Distributed generation (DG) is the use of small and modular power generation technologies (0–5 MW), commonly renewable, scattered throughout the power grid and distributed energy resources (DERs) include DG, reserve generation, cogeneration, energy storage, improvement in facility efficiency, and demand response management.

Promoting these DERs may face the aforementioned problems. The integration of DER may be proposed in two different areas: at power grid level or in small systems closer to the consumer. Both objectives are proposed in this article collection. Integration of DERs in the power system is essential to increase generation capacity, decrease power loosed, and increase the renewable generation. Besides, implementation of renewable energies in rural areas, maybe isolated from the grid, presents additional advantages as more space for the implementation of the facilities, availability of raw materials, helps to depopulate these areas, by increasing the available resources and increasing economic activity in these areas, etc.

Areas to be covered in this Research Topic may include, but are not limited to:
• Integration of distributed energy resources in power systems,
• Integration of renewable resources in rural areas,
• Optimal management of renewable resources,
• Management of storage systems,
• Demand response integration in power systems,
• Energy efficiency strategies,
• Optimal design of renewable generation in isolated areas.


Keywords: Distributed Energy Resources, Power Systems, Rural Areas, Renewable Energies, Energy Resource Management
