Abstract/Description: The future grid will combine both smart distribution network and distributed energy resources (DER) ensures it is reliable to do operations and increase the power quality. In the recent years, along with the traditional voltage regulators such as capacitor banks and tap changer transformers, power and voltage control based on DER method is widely proposed to cope with the overvoltage and undervoltage issues that causes by large penetration of distributed generation( DG). Moreover, with the application of advanced communication technology, some communication methods are applied on the voltage control in order to make the system coordinated. This thesis explores the area of decentralized control method to have a better understanding and knowledge of power system and its control. This is accomplished by designing a power system model and implement decentralized voltage control on it. The work starts with categorizing recent publications on coordinated voltage, summarizes way they modeled and built the systems, how they decoupled the systems and categorized the solution methods. Then this thesis proposes a novel coordinated voltage control technique designed to regulate the voltage along a distribution network by using zonal control of multiple PVs. The proposed strategy is tested using the IEEE 34 bus system in both offline and a controller hardware-in-the-loop (CHIL) real-time implementations. Data loss and communication latency scenarios are also performed with the objective of determining the overall behavior of the proposed controller. The outcome and aim of this work is expected to build real-time control models which can be applied on the real project
