    This paper proposes a dynamic updating method of the optimal control parameters of multiple advanced step voltage regulators (SVRs) in a single feeder considering a massive introduction of photovoltaic (PV) systems. Each advanced SVR can adjust their tap position according to the updated control parameters in a certain period. The main feature of the proposed method is that the optimal parameters which minimize the voltage violation amount from the proper range and the tap operation count of SVR are determined quickly based on greedy algorithm. A numerical simulation is carried out on an actual distribution system model with the measured PV and load data so that the effectiveness of the proposed method can be evaluated.
