Distribution Voltage Control Considering the Impact of PV Generation on Tap Changers and Autonomous Regulators

The uptake of variable Mega Watts from Photovoltaic(PV) challenges distribution system  operation. The primary problem is significant voltage rise in the feeder that forces existing voltage control devices such as on-load tap changers (OLTCs) and line voltage regulators (VRs) to operate continuously. The consequence is the deterioration their operating life. Also, conventional non-coordinated reactive power […]
