Capacity of Distribution Feeders for Hosting DER

The scope of the CIGRE WG C6.24 was to study the limits of distribution feeders for hosting DER and the derivation of practical guidelines for the connection of DER. For this purpose, the WG studied the technical evaluation practices adopted by DNOs all over the world. Main results of this investigation are summarized in the Technical Brochure, including a review of the main technical issues limiting hosting capacity of distribution feeders, the evaluation practices and methodologies applied by several DNOs, the means currently available to increase the hosting capacity, as well as a concentration of simplified, practical rules of thumb, currently adopted in DG interconnection studies.
