3 Active Network Management ANM strategies rely on shortterm policies that control power injected by generators and/or taken f by loads so as to avoid congestions or voltage problems. Simple strategy: Curtail production generators. More advanced strategy: Move consumption loads to relevant time periods. Such advanced strategies imply solving largescale optimal sequential decisionmaking problems under uncertainty. GREDOR  Gestion des Réseaux Electriques de Distribution Ouverts aux Renouvelables 3
4 Observations Several researchers tackled this operational planning problem. They rely on different formulations problem making it harder for one researcher to build on top anor one s work. We are looking to provide a generic formulation problem and a testbed in order to promote development computational techniques.

5 Problem description We consider problem faced by a DSO willing to plan operation its network over time while ensuring that operational constraints its infrastructure are not violated. This amounts to determine over time optimal operation a set D electrical devices We describe evolution system by a discretetime process having a time horizon T (fast dynamics is neglected).

12 Solution Techniques We identified three classes solution techniques that could be applied to operational planning problem: mamatical programming and in particular multistage stochastic programming; approximate dynamic programming; simulationbased methods such as direct policy search or MCTS.

14 Example Policy In order to illustrate operational planning problem and test instance let s consider a simple solution technique. It consists in a simplified version a multistage stochastic program: Figure : Scenario tree that is built at each time step.

15 In order to operate an electrical distribution network in a secure and coste cient way it is necessary due to rise renewable energybased distributed generation to develop Active Network Management (ANM) strategies. These strategies rely on shortterm policies that control power injected by generators and/or taken o by loads in order to avoid congestion or voltage problems. While simple ANM strategies would curtail production generators more advanced ones would move consumption loads to relevant time periods to maximize potential renewable energy sources. However such advanced strategies imply solving largescale optimal sequential decisionmaking problems under uncertainty something that is understandably complicated.
