Power System Voltage Correction Scheme Based on Adaptive Horizon Model Predictive Control
AbstractModel predictive control (MPC) is commonly used to compensate for modeling inaccuracies and measurement noise in voltage control problems. The length of the prediction horizon and control horizon of a MPC-based method has significant impact on the control performances. In existing relevant works, those horizon parameters are determined off-line based on experience or enumeration, and keeps constant during the entire receding-horizon optimization process. This paper presents a system voltage correction scheme based on adaptive horizon model predictive control (AH-MPC). The reactive power compensation and voltage regulation devices are coordinated to maintain the system voltages within a desired range. An evaluation index is proposed to determine the horizon parameters, which reflects the maximum voltage regulation ability with the current parameter configuration. Within each sampling interval, the horizon parameters are updated according to the evaluation index and real-time measurements periodically, which comprehensively considers the system uncertainties and voltage recovery speed, and the computational effort is remarkably reduced. The validation and effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by the simulation analysis on the test system. View Full-Text
