Under the context of smart grids within smart cities, increasing distributed generation, consumer empowerment and emerging flexibility services, distribution system operators could benefit by activating flexibility in distribution grids to avoid deploying new infrastructures and grid overloading. The solution offered by this work is an energy management system algorithm capable of activating flexibility behind the prosumer main meter during constrained periods. Therefore, the distribution system operator could compensate grid congestion during high consumption or production periods and increase their renewable generation hosting capacity by using behind-the-meter flexibility during peak production periods.
