Abstract

Recently, total number of distributed generators (DGs) such as photovoltaic generation system and wind power generation system connected to an actual distribution network increases drastically. The distribution network connected with many distributed generators must be operated keeping reliability of power supply, and power quality. In order to accomplish active distribution network operation to take advantage of many connections of DGs, a new coordinated operation of distribution system with many connections of DGs is necessary. So far, the authors have proposed a coordinated operation of distribution network system connected with many DGs by using sectionalizing switches control method, sending voltage control method, computation method of acceptable maximum output of DG and determination method of optimal smoothing time constant of wind power generation system with storage battery. In this paper, the authors develop an experiment of scaled-down three-phase distribution system with distributed generators in order to check the validity of the proposed approach.
