Full AC Analysis of Value of DER to The Grid and Optimal DER Scheduling

This paper presents part of the work ComEd and Quanta have performed to quantify the locational and temporal value of DER to avoid distribution grid upgrade investments. It focuses on the formulation of DER optimal dispatch on a distribution feeder to mitigate the violation of current and voltage limits using the allocated cost of capacity and locational marginal value of real and reactive DER injection/withdrawal.
