This paper presents preliminary results from the research project "Flexibility in the future smart distribution network" (FlexNett). The project aims at contributing to increased flexibility in the distribution network through, among other measures, flexible operation of the distribution network. Flexibility is defined, in the project, as a situational and time limited response to an incentive, i.e. shortage of energy, interruption, or changes in energy prices. Flexible network operation can for example include using energy storage, remote control and automatization of network operation and voltage control, resulting in improved security of supply and voltage quality, and in some cases also postponement of reinvestments.
