Decentralized reactive power dispatch for a time-varying multitso system Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper addresses the problem of reactive power dispatch in a power system partitioned into several areas controlled by different transmission system operators. Previous research has shown that nearly optimal performance could be achieved in a time-invariant system by using a specific iterative decentralized control scheme with no information exchange. At each iteration of this scheme, every transmission system operator concurrently schedules its own control settings for the next iteration while representing the neighboring areas with external network equivalents. This paper focuses on some parameter tracking techniques to extend the range of application of the decentralized control scheme to time-varying systems, where the time-varying nature of the system is modeled as a succession of steady-state operating conditions with variation of the load demand. Those new techniques are evaluated in the context of IEEE 118 bus system partitioned into three control areas. 2009 IEEE.
