The grid is moving towards a system of decentralized distributed generation using a large number of small scale renewable generation resources. These resources are stochastic in nature and therefore have to be continuously monitored and controlled for better system operation. This calls for an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure that is able to provide continuous generation and load data. However, losses in communication is always possible. The work in this paper tries to come up with a DG control scheme that makes it possible for the system to make meaningful decisions even during communication losses. Proposed here is a feeder level loss minimization control scheme that uses a possibilistic approach to come up with DG set points in the absence of continuous system data.
