The aim of this study is to analyze the different decentralized voltage control strategies, based on the reactive power control of photovoltaic inverters. The study focuses on evaluating their impact in terms of reactive power demanded from the grid, due to the regulation, and active losses in the network and in the photovoltaic inverters. In a second step, the presence of battery energy storage systems in the network is considered and further analysis are performed, in order to take into account the overvoltage mitigation by peak shaving of the photovoltaic generation. All the simulations are performed in MATLAB/SIMULINK, where the model of a single-phase low-voltage distribution network with distributed generation sources is implemented.

Abstract

The aim of this study is to analyze the different decentralized voltage control strategies, based on the reactive power control of photovoltaic inverters. The study focuses on evaluating their impact in terms of reactive power demanded from the grid, due to the regulation, and active losses in the network and in the photovoltaic inverters. In a second step, the presence of battery energy storage systems in the network is considered and further analysis are performed, in order to take into account the overvoltage mitigation by peak shaving of the photovoltaic generation. All the simulations are performed in MATLAB/SIMULINK, where the model of a single-phase low-voltage distribution network with distributed generation sources is implemented.
