Self-organizing Voltage Regulation in LV Distribution Networks

Project Description

As the fast growth integration of distributed energy resources in low voltage distribution networks (LVDNs), voltage stability faces more challenges, which in turn will limit the penetration of renewable energy. Therefore, voltage management is an important subject to the development of renewable energy. Along with the improvement of the multi-agent system, distributed cooperation method attracts general attention. In this project, a self-organizing voltage regulation approach will be proposed which can regulate the voltage through peer-to-peer interaction and cooperation with each other. We hope the proposed voltage regulation method can automatically organize different individuals in the network and lead them to cooperate with each other and finally automatically solve the voltage problem. Moreover, The robustness of the proposed method will be analysed based on a large number of simulations and analytical methods.
