This paper presents experiences of laboratory testing and field demonstration of a distribution network congestion management algorithm. Development process for new smart grid functionalities and automation architectures is discussed both in general level and through the example case of congestion management. The practical implementation of the developed algorithm is explained and test setups in all development process steps (offline simulations, laboratory testing and field demonstration) are presented. The objectives in different stages of the algorithm development and testing process are discussed and lessons learned from all the steps are represented.
