CIRED 2012: Demonstrating enhanced automatic voltage control for today’s low carbon network
“Increased amounts of distributed generation and disruptive loads such as electric vehicle (EV) charging and heat pumps will increase the importance of Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) to be able to actively managing voltage on their network. Dynamic voltage control is commonplace at higher voltages; however, tighter control of voltages further into the distribution network is likely to be necessary.
This paper provides an overview of the Customer Led Network Revolution (CLNR) project and the trials involving Enhanced Automatic Voltage Control (EAVC). The proposed control methodology is also discussed with a description of the Grand Unified Scheme (GUS) control system”
