There are four realities facing future power systems that require rethinking the distribution system and the use distributed energy resources, DER. These realities require that the T&D system:
Currently there are DER applications that can help alleviate some of these issues, but a comprehensive solution require integrating DER with distribution in such a way as to radically changing the way distribution and transmission are used to deliver power to the customer. The basic concept is to use DER to move all load following requirements to the distribution system and allow for intentional islanding within the distribution system to enhance reliable and provide high power quality to customers with sensitive loads.
