Distributed Energy Resources (DER) are local power sources like solar panels, windmills, and batteries. Many of these power sources use or help enable use of renewable "fuel" like sunlight and the the wind. Since these are societal goals, they are often encouraged by public policies, including economic subsidies. As a result, they are a growing part of the power grid in many countries.
The adoption of power sources on the distribution system leads to growing complexity for power delivery and operations. The original design of most power distribution systems envisioned one-way power flow from substations to customers. Transmission systems were designed for two-way power flow to reliably connect the large power generation plants to all the substations. As distributed power sources are connected to the Distribution system, two-way power flow becomes possible and the complexity begins to approach that of the Transmission system.
