The UK Government is promoting the decarbonisation of the power sector. The electrification of transport and heating, installation of distributed generators, development of smart grids and creation of an electricity and gas smart metering system are in progress. Higher penetrations of distributed generation and low carbon loads may lead to operational difficulties in distribution networks. Therefore, increased real-time monitoring and control becomes a necessary requirement. Distribution network operators will have available to them smart meter measurements to facilitate safe and cost-effective operation of distribution networks. This thesis investigates the application of smart meter measurements to extend the observability of distribution networks. Three main aspects were covered in this work: 1. The development of a cluster analysis algorithm to extract consumption patterns from smart meter measurements. The
