Abstract

Voltage rise effect in distribution networks poses challenges when increasing amounts of Distributed Energy Re-sources(DERs) are connected to the network. The voltage rise at connection point is usually the limiting factor of the network's DER hosting capacity. Rapid development and deployment of PV generation has introduced the voltage rise problem to LV networks. This paper demonstrates functional performance of coordinated voltage control for voltage rise mitigation in LV networks with several DERs. Real-Time Digital Simulator (RTDS) is used to run the simulations in real-time environment. Implementation of the coordinated voltage control scheme in LV networks is introduced and a new automation architecture is proposed.
