Abstract: The active distribution network (ADN) is an integral component of the smart grid. The ADN improves reliability and resiliency in the power grid integrated with many distributed energy resources (DERs). This is possible that, during outage, the ADN can be isolated from the main grid and it can continue to operate in island mode with indeterminate broken links and scarce generation resources. With the active management of increasing DERs, the distribution network is changed to active distribution network from passive network. This paper reviews the characteristics and challenges of deployment of distributed power plants (DPPs) in hierarchical active distribution network
