Sistema para Testes Operacionais em Controles de Reguladores de Tensão: Uma Interface em Hardware Integrada ao OpenDSS
Keywords: Voltage Regulator, OpenDSS, P-HIL, Electricity Distribution Network
AbstractThis work deals with a tool to assist in the tests of one of the main devices used to maintain the voltage level within the levels required by regulatory agencies in the electricity sector, the Voltage Regulators. Devices that are used along electric power distribution lines in order to keep the voltage level always close to the rated voltage, to avoid undervoltage and overvoltage. The developed system enables integration between the OpenDSS software and, through a hardware interface, transfers the physical values of voltage and current resulting from the simulation to the regulator control. Within the specifications defined for the tool, it showed results very similar to data extracted from software simulations. Proving to be a tool that can be well exploited for practical applications of simulated power flows in OpenDSS or by data extracted from a real network.
