The world of energy is transitioning into a scenario where the consumer is becoming a main player. Production of energy at low levels of the energy scheme, such as residential and commercial users, is setting as a trend and technology must keep on developing to tackle this transition. As decarbonisation is shedding light to new alternative generation sources and new operating methods such as distributed generation and energetic islands, Distribution System Operators play a decisive role in the implementation of new technologies and regulatory framework in order to address such new challenges. In parallel to the energetic transition, climate change is more evident than ever before. Natural hazards are increasingly impacting the world. The need of having a coordinated and fast response in front of such disruptive events leads to the concept of resilience. The capacity to adapt and recover from such events is essential to decrease their impact. The current master thesis aims at analysing the effects of integrating renewable distributed generation in a distribution level in order to increase grid resilience as well as to ensure power supply to the system demand.
