Non-ﬁrm access to the network is now being proposed as a cost eﬀective way to facilitate DG. However, concerns remain about the operational details of non-ﬁrm access and also with regard to the ﬁnancing of DG projects, which, by their nature, are not guaranteed permission to export power at all times. Here, the pertinent operational issues that arise with non-ﬁrm access are analysed. The index of coincidence is used to assess the probability of constraint breaches, through analysis of historical generation and load proﬁles. Further to this, a novel method is proposed, which minimises the cost to the generators of non-ﬁrm access through coordinated operation.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Institution of Engineering and Technology||Journal:||IET Renewable Power Generation||Volume:||3||Issue:||4||Start page:||455||End page:||464||Copyright (published version):||The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2009||Subject LCSH:||Distributed generation of electric power--Management
