    Abstract

    This paper presents a novel method of determining the control parameters and a voltage control method for multiple step voltage regulators (SVRs) in a single feeder. The main feature of the proposed method is the updating of the control parameters at constant intervals to minimize the amount of voltage violations and the tap operation times of the SVRs while maximizing the voltage margin from the proper limits in the distribution system. To determine the SVR control parameters, a combined method of a greedy algorithm and a tabu search is used. To verify the proposed method, numerical and experimental simulation studies based on an actual distribution model with photovoltaic (PV) sources are carried out. The results show that the proposed control method can reduce the amount of voltage violations and tap operation times of the SVRs compared with the conventional voltage control method.
