Abstract: This paper presents an implementation of capacitor placement and voltage reduction on distribution feeder. The objectives of this implementation are to obtain a flat voltage profile and reduce real power losses on distribution feeder. As a result, feeder capacity can be released and excess generation capacity could be avoided during peak-load periods. By installing capacitor banks on distribution feeder, cost allocation scheme between electric utility and small power producers is described. The proposed strategy has been tested with a 5-bus and 11-bus feeder models. The benefits of the proposed strategy depend on the load characteristics. The higher portion of voltage-dependent loads, the more benefits gained from voltage reduction. © 2007 IEEE.
