The high penetration of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) in distribution networks and the competitive environment of electricity markets impose the use of new approaches in several domains. The network cost allocation, traditionally used in transmission networks, should be adapted and used in the distribution networks considering the specifications of the connected resources. The main goal is to develop a fairer methodology trying to distribute the distribution network use costs to all players which are using the network in each period. In this paper, a model considering different type of costs (fixed, losses and congestion costs) is proposed comprising the use of a large set of DER, namely Distributed Generation (DG), Demand Response (DR) of direct load control type, Energy Storage Systems (ESSs).
