Abstract

Hierarchical systems based on HV grid subdivision into areas and on automatic coordination of each area’s reactive power resources aiming to control local voltages have been investigated in Europe (mainly in Italy and France) since 1980. These systems are collectively termed either coordinated voltage regulation (CVR) , to highlight the required coordination among area control resources, or they are also called secondary and tertiary voltage regulations (SVR and TVR), to emphasise the different layers of the control hierarchy. Reference studies and applications come from Italy and France, followed by Belgium, Spain and more recently by United States, Brazil, Taiwan, South Korea, Romania and South Africa. An international CIGRE task force investigated the subject and, in 2005, published an extensive report.
