This paper presents an optimal cooperative voltage control approach, which coordinates storage units in a distribution network. This technique is developed for storage systems’ active power management with a local strategy to provide robust voltage control and a distributed strategy to deliver optimal storage utilization. Accordingly, three control criteria based on predefined node voltage limits are used for network operation including normal, over-voltage, and under-voltage control modes. The contribution of storage units for voltage support is determined using the control modes and the coordination strategies proposed in this paper. This technique is evaluated in two case studies to assess its capability. View Full-Text
