Hybrid approach for planning and operating active distribution grids

This paper investigates the planning and operational processes of modern distribution networks hosting distributed energy resources (DERs). While in the past the two aspects have been distinct, a methodology is proposed in this paper to co-optimise …

Power System Dynamic Simulations Using a Parallel Two-Level Schur-Complement Decomposition

As the need for faster power system dynamic simulations increases, it is essential to develop new algorithms that exploit parallel computing to accelerate those simulations. This paper proposes a parallel algorithm based on a two-level, …

Active Management of Low-Voltage Networks for Mitigating Overvoltages Due to Photovoltaic Units

In this paper, the overvoltage problems that might arise from the integration of photovoltaic (PV) panels into low-voltage (LV) distribution networks is addressed. A distributed scheme is proposed that adjusts the reactive and active power output of …
