Abstract

Voltage regulation in the distribution networks becomes more challenging when the distribution generation (DG) units are introduced. The reasons behind that are: the reverse power flow which is introduced by the DG units, in addition to the probabilistic nature of the generated power due to renewable-based DG units. In this paper, a fuzzy algorithm is proposed to provide an adaptive reference of the OLTC controller, such that the OLTC, which feeds a multiple feeders, can mitigate the effect of the high penetration of the DG units. The motivations behind using the fuzzy logic are: 1) it can map nonlinear relations behind its inputs and output; and 2) it can provide a smooth transition, which lead to a more relaxed tap operation compared to the conventional logic control. The proposed fuzzy algorithm is tested using a radial structure distribution network which is modeled using SIMULINK/MATLAB.
