active networks

reegle definition:

Distribution networks traditionally are passively managed. Active management enables generators and customers to connect more easily; allow greater interaction between utilities and customers and provide incentives to consumers and generators to act more efficiently both in the short and long-term. Active management stems from greater interconnectivity of networks and the use of local control areas (or cells). Such networks offer the opportunity for an increased range of services to consumers, as well as offering greater operational security. They tend to become increasingly necessary as the level of distributed generation on a system increases. SERN, 2010
