"PV-Rich Communities, Storage, and Flexibility: The Need for Distribution System Operators"



Specific abstract: Australia has seen in the last few years the rapid adoption of residential-scale photovoltaic (PV) systems. Householders and communities are attracted to the benefits from generating their own electricity. Battery storage systems are also becoming attractive as they allow storing excess PV generation during the day to use it later at night. However, PV-rich communities will pose significant technical and economic challenges on distribution networks - but also some opportunities. For this PV-rich future to thrive, more intelligent, flexible electricity networks, also known as Smart Grids, are likely to play an important role. But for Smart Grids to emerge, the traditional Distribution Network Service Provider (DNSP) needs to evolve into an engaged, flexible Distribution System Operator (DSO) in which network elements and participants (consumers, generators, and those that do both) are actively managed to fulfil technical, economic, and environmental objectives. This talk will present and discuss the different challenges of PV-rich communities and the role of storage and other technologies in creating more flexibility at different scales. The Distribution System Operator (DSO) vision, potential future roles, and the perceived challenges to ensure the corresponding transition will also be presented and discussed.




Luis Nando Ochoa is a Professor of Smart Grids and Power Systems at The University of Melbourne, Australia and part-time Professor of Smart Grids at The University of Manchester (former UMIST), UK. He is an IEEE PES Distinguished Lecturer since 2015 and an IEEE Senior Member since 2012. From 2007 to 2010 he was a Research Fellow in Energy Systems at the University of Edinburgh, UK. In 2010 he also undertook an industrial secondment with the Edinburgh-based company Psymetrix Ltd (now part of GE). He hold a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering received from UNI (Peru), and a Research MSc and a PhD in Electrical Power Engineering, both received from UNESP Ilha Solteira (Brazil). He is co-author of more than 130 research papers (list of publications and Research Gate) in peer-reviewed top ranked journals and top class international conferences and more than 50 technical reports. He is  also co-inventor of one patent filed by Psymetrix Ltd. He is also Visiting Professor at UNICAMP (Brazil) since 2014.
