Adaptive Coordination of Distributed Energy Resources in Lossy Power Distribution Systems

Abstract

This paper is concerned with the problem of coordinating a set of distributed energy resources (DERs) in a lossy power distribution system to provide frequency regulation services to a bulk power grid with the explicit consideration of system losses. To this end, we formulate the problem as an optimization problem, the objective of which is to minimize some cost function subject to a set of constraints. The formulation requires knowledge of incremental total system losses, which we approximate using the so-called loss factors (LFs) that explicitly capture the impacts of both active and reactive power injections on system losses. The LFs are estimated recursively using power injection measurements; thus, they are adaptive to various phenomena that impact the power system operation. Numerical simulation on a 33-bus distribution test feeder validated the effectiveness of the proposed framework.
