Power networks of medium voltage (2kV to 35kV typically) that connect the higher voltage transmission system to most of the electricity consumers. This tag covers anything related to electric power distribution system operation, protection, maintenance and capacity upgrade.

Distribution networks deliver power to end customers through distribution "feeders", that is, these are typically radial (or tree) networks. This tag refers to any topic related to distribution-network operation, protection, maintenance and capacity upgrade. Topics such as smart grids, distributed energy resources and microgrids are intimately related to distribution networks.
