This paper aims to detail and illustrate the operation of the LEMS during the grid-connected and grid-disconnected mode of the Smart Rural Grid (SRG) project. The SRG project is focused on DSO’s capabilities to increase the interoperability, resilience, efficiency and robustness of the existing rural distribu- tion network by the utilization of new Smart Grid technologies. This project is founded by the European Union and it is constituted by an eight partners consortium mixing their know- how in a hybrid smart solution; therefore, power electronics, control theory, telecommunications, distribution system operator energy managing, supervisory systems and end-users coexist in a pilot network. This pilot network includes four rural secondary substations up to 200 kVA interconnected by means of medium voltage rural overhead lines in Vallfogona, Catalonia, Spain. Index Terms —Intelligent power distribution router, power quality, rural distribution network, smart rural grid.
