J.P. Chaves T. Gómez R. Cossent N. Morell L. Herding

March 2020 - October 2020

Funding entity Autoridad Reguladora de los Servicios Públicos (ARESEP)


The objective of this project is to determine the technical criteria and possible methods to define the charges to the producer-consumer to connect to the distribution network and the limits for the integration of the distributed generation into the Costa Rican electricity system.
Once the diagnosis of the sector and the synthesis of the review of international experiences have been prepared, a workshop will be held in order to identify relevant aspects for the design of a strategy for implementing actions for the integration of distributed generation in the electrical system national.
From the diagnosis, the analysis of the international experiences and the results of the workshop will be elaborated: (i) a proposal for the calculation method for determining of the distribution network availability rate and its technical justification, (ii) a proposal of calculation method for the determination distribution network access charges and its technical justification, (iii) a proposal of technical criteria to calculate the limits for connection of systems and energy injected in the network.
