Micro grids will develop over the coming years and become more and more common. The main drivers of this are the increased benefits resulting from the aggregation and decentralised control of demand, storage and (where applicable) decentralised generation for improved security of supply and resilience. It is therefore necessary that micro grids face a regulatory framework that is fully consistent with the one used for the wider grid. In fully developed interconnected grids, the local distribution system operator (DSO) will be the best choice for the development and operation of micro grids. This paper provides a basic overview for understanding how DSOs act in making microgrids an integrated part of the electricity distribution system of the future.
