Recent developments in electricity supply initiated a process of transforming centrally organized electricity supply environments to more and more distributed ones. As a result, distribution grids increasingly have to face system related challenges (e.g. voltage and capacity related problems) to further integrate distributed, renewable and volatile generation capacities into existing grid infrastructures. However, research for innovations in grid integration and operation approaches show that there exist alternatives to conventional methods by implementing active network management concepts based on new communication technologies.
