Abstract

The output power generation of photovoltaic (PV) has an intermittent nature due to cloud transients. Consequently, considerable fluctuations in the voltages are expected in distribution systems with high PV penetrations. In this paper, a method is proposed to mitigate voltage fluctuations due to PV by simultaneously optimizing the reactive power of the PV inverters and charging/discharging power of the plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV). To effectively mitigate voltage fluctuations, we introduce a new objective function that represents the deviation of the voltage from the past moving average. The use of this new objective yields a high reduction in the voltage fluctuations. The artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm is utilized to optimally solve the real-time optimization problem while considering the constraints of the distribution system, PV inverters, and PHEVs. The simulation results on the 33-bus distribution system demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method for mitigating the voltage fluctuations during a high fluctuating generation profile of PV.
