The paper presents improvements on the short-term network planning of a distribution system and distributed generation (DG) on the open electricity market. The interconnection of DG is currently based on worst case principle thus great savings in network investments can be achieved by applying a statistical planning approach. An idea for flexible interconnection is also introduced which further extends the advantages of a statistical planning approach. The approach is applied to an existing network information system (NIS) used for distribution network planning. The capability of the proposed approach is presented with a real life example and with a concept for voltage level management.
