Abstract


  • The International Electrotechnical Committee Technical Report IEC 61000-3-13 is focused on the coordination of voltage unbalance (VU) in power systems by prescribing a methodology to determine individual VU emission allocation limits to installations. This paper provides an alternative VU emission allocation process to that of the IEC Technical Report, which is based on the concept of constrained bus voltage (CBV) method. The proposed methodology can be used in relation to radial distribution networks with symmetrical distribution lines. Several application examples of the proposed methodology are presented. It is shown that the proposed methodology is superior in comparison to the VU allocation methodology presented in IEC technical reports, as it enables the network VU absorption capacity to be fully utilised.
