Abstract

This paper proposes some methods for the purpose of reactive power and voltage control. Real cases show them as potentially harmful for power systems, since dynamic instability and voltage collapse may appear. Control actions like tap changers, active and reactive power redispatch may help the system voltage stability, but may present reverse results for some operating conditions. This paper is firstly devoted to identify and classify an operating point under the voltage stability point of view. Following this classification, an index to assess the robustness of a bus is proposed. The studies are carried out with the help of the QV curves. Methods to change the region of operation of a bus are then discussed with the help of a real Brazilian system with all limits considered.
