The increased spreading of distributed and renewable generation requires moving towards active management of distribution networks. In order to evaluate maximum wind energy exploitation in active distribution networks, a method based on a multi-period optimal power flow analysis is proposed. Active network management schemes such as coordinated voltage control, energy curtailment and power factor control are integrated in the method in order to investigate their impacts on the maximisation of wind energy exploitation. Some case studies, using real data from a Danish distribution system, confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed method in evaluating the optimal applications of active management schemes to increase wind energy harvesting without costly network reinforcement for the connection of wind generation.
