Research Projects

Title: A New on-load tap changer voltage control SCHEME for networks with renewable energy sources

Voltage control is an important method for regulating the feeder voltages in a distribution network. Various voltage control methods are used by distribution network operators (DNOs) in order to maintain the network voltages to be within an acceptable voltage level. Traditionally, on-load tap changer (OLTC) and automatic voltage control (AVC) relays are often employed in regulating the network voltages. However, the traditional voltage control techniques are no longer suitable when renewable energy (RE) sources are connected to the network because of the possibility of bidirectional power flows. The presence of reverse power flow will affect the feeder voltage profiles and influence the voltage control scheme practiced in the distribution system. The aim of this research is to develop a new OLTC voltage control scheme to be used in distribution networks containing RE sources.
