A closed loop substation peak shaving/congestion management controller for radial distribution networks is presented. The controller it uses an individual control signal in order to shift the consumption of a population of demand side resources, DSRs. The controller auto tunes its parameters on-line using time series of the aggregate power consumption. No communication with the single DSRs is required. Simulations for validating the proposed control strategy using the MV CIGRE’ reference network are presented.
