Abstract

Distributed generators (DGs) encompass a huge economical and environmental potential, especially if these DGs are based on renewable energy sources. However, high penetration of DGs into distribution systems can trigger voltage deviations beyond the statutory range, and can reverse power flow toward the substation transformer. Consequently, DGs can increase energy losses if they are not well controlled. Coincidentally, the demand of plug-in electric ...
