 Abstract—The uncertainty in distributed renewable generation poses security threats to the real-time operation of distribution systems. The real-time dispatchable region (RTDR) can be used to assess the ability of power systems to accommodate renewable generation at a given base point. DC and linearized AC power flow models are typically used for bulk power systems, but they are not suitable for lowvoltage distribution networks with large r/x ratios. To balance accuracy and computational… Expand


Real-time dispatchable region of renewable generation constrained by the reactive power and voltage profiles in AC power networks
An AC power flow based RTDR model simultaneously considering the reactive power and voltage profiles constraints is proposed and the nonlinear constraints in the model are approximated using a linear power flow model together with a polytope approximation technique for quadratic constraints. Expand
