This webinar will present the Reference Networks Models (RNM), which are useful tools for large-scale distribution network planning. These models combine technical and economic analyses: operation of distribution networks with optimal reinforcements and new infrastructure needs.
The webinar will present the modelling details of RNM as well as the applications and case studies. RNM are becoming increasingly popular as they provide regulators with an estimation of the efficient costs that would be incurred by a distribution company supplying a certain geographical area. In addition, the RNM compute sensitivities about the the integration of different type of distributed energy resources.
