Traditional energy sources are experiencing a crisis as a result of the growing global economy. In contrast, green energy sources, like wind energy, are supported by national policies and are gradually gaining public attention. However, because of their stochastic characteristics and intermittent power generation, which compromise power grid security and scheduling capabilities, green energy sources lead to problems with polished wind abandonment. Because of its initiative and flexibility, active distribution network technology has emerged as a viable solution to classic active distribution network difficulties. This has led to a great deal of in-depth research being conducted by both domestic and international experts. In addition to introducing demand side management (DSM) level response relevant areas for analysis, this paper also discusses the current state of domestic and international research on optimisation algorithms for active distribution grids.
