Abstract

Due to significant line resistances in microgrids, active power variations produced by wind turbine can lead to significant fluctuations in voltage magnitudes and as a result economic of the grid. This project proposes a voltage sensitivity analysis-based scheme to achieve voltage regulation at a target bus in such microgrids. The method is local and can be implemented in the absence of widespread communication system or remote measurement. The economic performance of the method is illustrated on the IEEE-13 bus distribution network. Dynamic simulations (in PSCAD/EMTDC) are presented to assess the voltage regulation characteristics.
