Reactive power coordination at the TSO/DSO boundary


Work description

This research work consists on the development and improvement of an innovative optimization tools based on stochastic methodologies for managing the distribution network taking into account the coordination between the DSO and the TSO. The tool main goal is to empower the DSO with appropriate levers to preventively mitigate and solve congestion and voltage problems while keeping the power factor in the primary substation at pre-defined levels.
