Distributed Voltage Control in Distribution Networks with High Penetration of Photovoltaic Systems

H. Yousefi; S.A. Gholamian; A. Zakariazadeh

Volume 8, Issue 2 , August 2020, , Pages 164-171


  In this paper, a distributed method for reactive power management in a distribution system has been presented. The proposed method focuses on the voltage rise where the distribution systems are equipped with a considerable number of photovoltaic units. This paper proposes the alternating direction method ...  Read More

Distribution Systems
A Bi-Level Optimization Approach for Optimal Operation of Distribution Networks with Retailers and Micro-grids

H. Fateh; A. Safari; S. Bahramara

Volume 8, Issue 1 , February 2020, , Pages 15-21


  Distributed energy resources (DERs) including distributed generators (DGs) and controllable loads (CLs) are managed in the form of several microgrids (MGs) in active distributions networks (ADNs) to meet the demand locally. On the other hand, some loads of distribution networks (DNs) can be supplied ...  Read More
