Abstract

In this study, we determine the suitable method and timing for the renewal of the voltage control method using voltage control performance evaluated by the maximum photovoltaic (PV) installation rate possible without voltage deviation. The voltage control method is renewed when the voltage of a distribution system deviates with an existing voltage control method. We determine the most suitable voltage control method, which extends the most PV systems, and define its renewal timing as the moment when the PV installation causes voltage deviation. For the renewal of the voltage control method, changing the control operation of a load ratio control transformer (LRT) and the additional installation of a static VAR compensator (SVC) are considered. A numerical simulation is performed to calculate the limit of PV installation rate of each voltage control method to determine the suitable one and its renewal timing.
