Abstract

This paper presents a novel method for determining the control parameters and a voltage control method for multiple step voltage regulators (SVRs) in a single feeder. The main purpose of the proposed method is to reduce the amount of voltage violation and the tap operation times and to extend the voltage margin from the upper and lower voltage limits by updating the control parameters of the SVRs. To determine the control parameters of the SVRs, an improved greedy algorithm is used. In order to verify the proposed method, a numerical and experimental simulation study based on an actual distribution model is carried out. The results show that the proposed control method has the capability to reduce the amount of the voltage violation in a distribution system and the tap operation times of the SVRs.
