Abstract

High penetration of intermittent distributed generation access to the grid is a new challenge of the grid planning and operation. In order to achieve the best balance between economic cost and distributed generation capacity, a new method of active distribution network integration considering voltage control cost and voltage control effect is proposed. Firstly, the paper analyzes the voltage regulation characteristics of distributed and centralized voltage regulation, and establishes the technical framework, voltage regulation strategy and economic cost model of different voltage regulation systems. Then, an integrated planning model with objectives of minimizing comprehensive cost and maximizing clean energy utilization under constraints of maintaining voltage acceptable and total cost reasonable was implemented. The simulation results demonstrate that the proposed approach is able to integrate larger distributed generators while maintaining voltage within statutory limits and decrease distribution network operators' economic cost.
