    Abstract

    The paper presents the results of a case study conducted on a real-life distribution system, in which an active network management solution is compared against passive network reinforcements. A methodology for assessing the hosting capacity of medium voltage network for distributed generation is presented and results of two calculation cases (Active Network Management and equivalent passive investment) are compared from investment cost-benefit perspective. The results of the paper show significant economic benefits in Active Network Management based solutions against passive reinforcements.
