Influence of the supply of reactive power in the calculation of the transfer capability
This paper presents some initial concepts for including reactive power in linear methods for computing Available Transfer Capability (ATC). It is proposed an approximation for the reactive power flows computation that uses ...
Pricing of reactive power support provided by distributed generators in transmission systems
Distributed Generation, microgrid technologies, two-way communication systems, and demand response programs are issues that are being studied in recent years within the concept of smart grids. At some level of enough ...
Reactive power support pricing of distributed generators with primary energy source uncertainty
In this paper, a novel methodology to price the reactive power support ancillary service of Distributed Generators (DGs) with primary energy source uncertainty is shown. The proposed methodology provides the service pricing ...
Comparison of Reactive Power Support in Distribution Networks Provided by Capacitor Banks and Distributed Generators
This paper presents a comparison of reactive power support in distribution networks provided by switched Capacitor Banks (CBs) and Distributed Generators (DGs). Regarding switched CBs, a Tabu Search metaheuristic algorithm ...
Distributed generators as providers of reactive power support - A market approach
Traditionally, ancillary services are supplied by large conventional generators. However, with the huge penetration of distributed generators (DGs) as a result of the growing interest in satisfying energy requirements, and ...
Optimal allocation of distributed generators providing reactive power support ancillary service
Problems as voltage increase at the end of a feeder, demand supply unbalance in a fault condition, power quality decline, increase of power losses, and reduction of reliability levels may occur if Distributed Generators ...
