What is it about?

Two methods were proposed to optimize the reactive power of PV inverter and active power from charging station of PHEVs for matching a target voltage profile and mitigate the voltage fluctuation comes from intermittent nature of PV.

Why is it important?

The proposed methods could optimize the reactive power of PV inverters and the charging/discharging operation of PHEVs so that fluctuations and rise in voltages are effectively mitigated. These methods aim to match a target voltage profile that can be preset by distribution system operators.


I hope this article Contributes to the optimal operation of distribution systems. where the article has proposed two optimization-based methods to keep the voltage at the point of common coupling within the permissible limits. Moreover, the fluctuation has mitigated. I hope you find this article thought-provoking.
