dc.description.abstract As the amount of distributed generation (DG) is growing worldwide, the need to increase the hosting capacity of distribution systems without reinforcements is becoming nowadays a major concern. This paper explores how the DG hosting capacity of active distribution systems can be increased by means of network reconfiguration, both static, i.e., grid reconfiguration at planning stage, and dynamic, i.e., grid reconfiguration using remotely controlled switches as an active network management (ANM) scheme. The problem is formulated as a mixed-integer, nonlinear, multi-period optimal power flow (MP-OPF) which aims to maximize the DG hosting capacity under thermal and voltage constraints. This work further proposes an algorithm to break-down the large problem size when many periods have to be considered. The effectiveness of the approach and the significant benefits obtained by static and dynamic reconfiguration options in terms of DG hosting capacity are demonstrated using a modified benchmark distribution system. en_US
