Application of Reactive Energy and Embedded Generation Effects On Low Voltage Networks Performance 4.49 MB - The deployment of reactive compensation and DG brings ample technological and environmental benefits to the traditional distribution networks. The appropriate sizing and placement of capacitors banks and DG help to reduce power losses and avoid transmission and distribution system expansion.
The simulator used is OpenDSS and it is primarily designed to simulate the low-voltage systems, with the unique ability to analyse the unbalanced three phase systems , especially with the connection of distributed generation.
A study into the effect of reactive compensation applied to LV networks has shown that shunt compensation applied at the main substation may be useful to limit the voltage drop across the transformer. However, downstream compensation is not so effective in reducing feeder voltage drop but may help to reduce network currents and help to operate within cable ampacity.
Moderate quantities of embedded generation can alleviate voltage drops and current loading along feeders. Do you want to download or read a ebook? It is available in PDF or epub format in the source
