The active distribution network (ADN) is able to manage distributed generators (DGs), active loads and storage facilities actively. It is also capable of purchasing electricity from main grid and providing ancillary services through a flexible dispatching mode. A competitive market environment is beneficial for the exploration of ADN’s activeness in optimizing dispatch and bidding strategy. In a bilateral electricity market, the decision variables such as bid volume and price can influence the market clearing price (MCP). The MCP can also have impacts on the dispatch strategy of ADN at the same time. This paper proposes a bi level coordinate dispatch model with fully consideration of the information interaction between main grid and ADN. Simulation results on a typical ADN validate the feasibility of the proposed method. A balanced proportion between energy market and ancillary services market can be achieved. © The Author(s) 2015.
