dispersed generation, energy storage, electric distribution networks, optimal planning.


The new technologies of energy generation are increasingly present in the power distribution systems and they are an important part of the studies of the distribution networks expansion. These dispersed generation and storage systems cause impacts on the investment costs, the power losses, the reliability, the "pollution", etc. and they should be considered in the planning studies of the distribution systems. This paper presents a multiobjective methodology for expansion studies of power distribution networks including an example of application to a part of the power distribution systems of La Rioja (Spain).
