Recent increases in the frequency of extreme weather events, along with their catastrophic impact on power systems have underlined the significance of enhancing power system resilience. Here we propose a resilience-oriented two-stage hardening strategy for active distribution networks (ADNs) based on a decision-dependent distributionally robust optimization (DD-DRO) approach, which simultaneously accounts for the decision-dependent uncertainty (DDU) and distributional ambiguity of network contingency. The first stage is to derive the proactive resilience enhancement measures, including pole and line upgradation, vegetation management, distributed generation allocation and network reconfiguration. The second stage is to minimize total expected load shedding throughout the propagation of the extreme event, assuming the worst-case probability distribution for network contingency identified in the decision-dependent ambiguity set for network contingency. Then, through utilizing the duality theory and McCormick envelope, the original model is recast into a two-stage robust optimization formulation which facilitate the column-and-constraint (C&CG) algorithm. Case studies verified the performance of the proposed strategy, as well as its merits in terms of DDU and distributional ambiguity considerations.
