Co-simulation Platform for the Analysis of Communication-based
version 1.0.1 (22.8 KB) by admin2012
The paper presents an ICT and power co-simulation platform for the analysis of the volt/var control and relevant optimization in medium voltage distribution feeders, achieved by means of a system of distributed controllers coordinated via a shared band-limited digital communication network. The platform has been built by realizing the interface between two specific simulation environments: the Electromagnetic Transient Program EMTP-RV and the communication network simulator Opnet Modeller. The preliminary results provide basic indications on the expected performances of the considered communication-based strategies for different traffic congestion levels and load/generation dynamic variations.
