The dynamic of the Energy Transition is engaged in many regionof the World. This is a real challenge for electric systems and aparadigm shift for existing distribution networks. With the help of"advanced" smart technologies, the Distribution SystemOperators will have a central role to integrate massively renewablegeneration, electric vehicle and demand response programs. Manyprojects are on-going to develop and assess advanced smart gridssolutions, with already some lessons learnt. In the end, the SmartGrid is a mean for Distribution System Operators to ensure thequality and the security of power supply.
Several books have been written to provide a definition of Smartgrids, explore the different technical evolution needed and explain/ analyse what would be the benefits. All those books are conductedon theoretical basis by academics and strategy consultants. Thisnew book will propose a complementary and singular approach basedon a practical experience from DSO's.
