Abstract

In active distribution system (ADS), the access of distributed generation (DG) can effectively improve the power supply capacity (PSC). In order to explore the effect of DG on the PSC, the influence of accessed DG on the power supply of ADS has been studied based on generalized sensitivity analysis (SA). On the basis of deriving and obtaining the sensitivity of the evaluation indexes of the PSC to the parameters of connected DG, seeking for the DG access instruction for the purpose of improving the PSC, PSC evaluation model with inserted DG is established based on SA. The change degrees and trends of the PSC and its evaluation indexes caused by the slight increase of DG are calculated rapidly, which provides reference for the planning and operation of ADS. Finally, the feasibility and validity of the proposed theory are validated via IEEE 14-node case study. View Full-Text
