Reactive Power Markets for the Future Grid

  title={Reactive Power Markets for the Future Grid},
  author={Adam W. Potter and Rabab Haider and Anuradha M. Annaswamy},
As pressures to decarbonize the electricity grid increase, the grid edge is witnessing a rapid adoption of distributed and renewable generation. As a result, traditional methods for reactive power management and compensation may become ineffective. Current state of art for reactive power compensation, which rely primarily on capacity payments, exclude distributed generation (DG). We propose an alternative: a reactive power market at the distribution level. The proposed market uses variable…

Distributed Generators as Providers of Reactive Power Support—A Market Approach
Traditionally, ancillary services are supplied by large conventional generators. However, with the huge penetration of distributed generators (DGs) as a result of the growing interest in satisfying
A new approach for cost allocation and reactive power pricing in a deregulated environment
A new approach based on tracing algorithm is proposed for pricing of reactive power which considers the cost of both active and reactive losses allocated to each generator.
Reactive power pricing in power markets: a comprehensive review
ABSTRACT Reactive power is one of the main characteristics that play a major role in power systems. When reactive flow is inadequate, the power system is confronted with voltage collapse and more
Distribution Locational Marginal Pricing (DLMP) for Congestion Management and Voltage Support
In this paper, a day-ahead market-clearing model for smart distribution systems is proposed, through which the distribution locational marginal pricing (DLMPs) for both active power and reactive power are determined.
Toward a Retail Market for Distribution Grids
This paper proposes a retail market for optimally managing and scheduling DERs, and coordinating ancillary services in a distribution grid, which leverages a recently proposed distributed proximal atomic coordination (PAC) algorithm which has several advantages over other distributed algorithms, with reduced local computational effort and enhanced privacy.

With the restructuring of the electric power industry, operation and control strategies have undergone a shift in paradigm. Certain activities that were earlier considered as part of the integrated
A Procurement Market Model for Reactive Power Services Considering System Security
A reactive power procurement market model is proposed here taking into consideration system security aspects, and the selected set of generators and zonal price components are determined by solving an OPF-based auction to maximize a societal advantage function.
Reactive Power as an Ancillary Service
This paper addresses the problem of reactive power procurement by an independent system operator (ISO) in deregulated electricity markets. A reactive bid structure is proposed in the context of a
Retail market policy for distribution systems in presence of DERs and microgrids: comparison of sequential and simultaneous settlement of energy and reactive power markets
In this study, sequential and simultaneous clearing of energy and reactive power markets are investigated. In the sequential clearing, a model is proposed for reactive power market clearing in
