Real-time testing of new and more sophisticated distributed resource interfaces during transients, representing the different physical parts (mechanical, thermal, hydraulic, chemical, electrical, electronics) of a nonconventional generator in a single platform, or analyzing the interactions of distribution systems with distributed generators, energy markets, and customer behaviors are scenarios that cannot be studied with current software packages. This paper analyzes the present status and discusses the future development of tools that could cope with these simulation challenges. This paper includes test cases that will illustrate the scope of some of these simulation tools. © 2011 IEEE.

This paper provides an overview of market issues related to the economic operation of an electric energy system with a high penetration of distributed energy resources. Models and tools to tackle these issues are discussed. A fully-fledged market structure of the pool type is considered. The analysis focuses on a particular distributed resource, wind power, the most economically successful renewable source. © 2011 IEEE.

The feasibility study of a power system is aimed at determining whether the system can adequately satisfy the load. The study will usually include other purposes, such as estimating the life-cycle cost of the system. This paper summarizes the main capabilities of current software packages for feasibility analysis of distributed energy resources. The document presents a short description of models, dispatch strategies, and economic indicators implemented in some packages. The test cases included in this paper will illustrate the scope of a feasibility study considering off-grid and grid-connected distributed resources. © 2011 IEEE.
