In this paper, we present a day-ahead optimal scheduling for reactive power of PV inverters and tap position of on-load tap changer (OLTC) in distribution network. We used a pattern search optimization algorithm based on the forecasted load demand and PVs active power generation. While the objective is to minimize the node voltage deviation and network losses, the maximum number of tap operation is maintained in a predefined limit. A modified IEEE 34 node test feeder is used to demonstrate the… CONTINUE READING
