Congestion management is one of the key components in the transfer towards active distribution networks that enable cost-effective network interconnection of distributed generation and better utilization of network assets. Since the aim of congestion management algorithms is to guarantee acceptable network state in all loading and generation situations, they should be able to operate reasonably also in exceptional situations. This paper discusses the different exceptional situations that can be encountered during congestion management algorithm operation and presents the handling of them in one implemented algorithm.
