Abstract
This paper describes the results of studies carried out as part of the on-going Network Innovation Competition (NIC) Power Potential project which is investigating the use of distributed energy resources (DER) to support voltage control on transmission network. In order to enable the use of DER for transmission services, a sequential two-stage reactive market approach and security constrained optimal power flows based reactive power allocation have been developed. It considers the dynamic availability and cost characteristics of virtual power plant (VPP) driven by changes in the local distribution system conditions in coordination with the state of the transmission network. A set of studies was carried out on the South East part of the GB transmission system to demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed methodology; the key findings from the analysis are presented and discussed in this paper.
