This paper presents a proposal to compute use-of-system (UoS) tariffs in distribution networks for distributed generation. The proposed calculation method provides tariffs based on the following principles: cost assignment through causality criterion, transparency, simplicity, efficiency and stability to let new investors reduce and control their risks. A study case based on a real distribution network is presented to show the practical applicability of the proposed method.
