PD-04: Development and Demonstration of a Power Electronics Assisted Distribution Voltage Regulator
Mesut E. Baran
Project runs from 01/02/2019 to 12/31/2019
This project aims at developing a novel power electronics assisted voltage regulator for the distribution grid. The proposed solution is based on the existing Step Voltage Regulator (SVR) but potentially increases their number of electrical operations by five times. The proposed solution offers arcless operation, fast dynamic response, volt/var control, and voltage sag/swell compensation capability.
