Optimal & Fast Placement of DG Unit by CPF Method Using MATLAB Toolbox PSAT
Mayur D. Rathod,  Alpesh S.Adeshara
The voltage stability problem is occurring while increasing the loading parameters on power system network buses. One of the reasons of increasing the loading parameter is consumption of reactive power. Distributed generator has capacity for absorbing and injecting both active and reactive power in the distribution network and so many other benefits from DG unit. By placing the DG in system at right bus, there would be improvement the voltage stability margin and improvement voltage profile for each load bus. Continuation power flow method is used as power flow and finds the most sensitive bus for voltage collapse by the help of PV curve. IEEE 14 bus system is used for study and analysis in MATLAB tool box PSAT
Keywords- Distributed Generator (DG), Voltage stability, PV curve, Voltage stability margin (VSM), Continuation power flow (CPF) method, and Voltage profile.
