    Abstract

    Widespread interconnection of Photovoltaic (PV) systems in the distribution system may create voltage rise problem. In this paper, a decentralized voltage control method by use of voltage regulators (VRs) and demand side management using consumer controllable load has been proposed for voltage rise compensation. The proposed method includes a novel determination method to find dynamic line drop compensation (LDC) parameters for a VR that has reverse power flow using the measured line current through VR and an optimal method that determines a dead band for a VR in order to lessens the number of tap operations while minimizing voltage deviation and violation. The obtained results show that voltage violation is extensively mitigated by the proposed method and no significant increment in tap operations of VR is encountered.
