Balancing the power of transformers in low voltage distribution feeders by using the Back - to - Back power converter

Abstract

This paper discusses a Back-to-Back (BTB) power converter based solution to avoid the overloaded operation of two low voltage feeders operating in parallel. With this purpose the BTB converter based on eight conditions of operation is proposed as means to exchange load between feeders to prevent overload conditions and balance the load on power transformers.
