In order to reduce CO2 emissions and alleviate the global warming issue, many countries are setting goals to increase the percentage of renewable energy in the total energy consumption. In this process, a large number of distributed energy resources (DER), distributed generation (DG), electric vehicles (EV) and heat pumps (HP), will be largely deployed in electrical distribution networks. Congestion management will be important in the future active distribution networks. In the IDE4L project, work package 5 is dedicated to develop different kinds of congestion management methods. Demand response (DR) is one of the important methods. In this report, as one task of work package 5, the day-ahead dynamic tariff (DADT)
method for congestion management in distribution networks is presented. The dynamic tariff (DT) can motivate the flexible demands (EV and HP) to shift their energy consumption in a way that favours the secure operation of distribution networks. Therefore, the DADT method belongs to the DR programs.
