This paper gives an introduction on the Cell-based Active Network (CBAN), a potential system concept for future distribution networks. One of its functions, to deal with limiting the network voltage changes, is focused on with a proposed control scheme. This is based on an appropriate dispatch of DG’s active and reactive power which is implemented autonomously within cells (feeders) of the CBAN. The test results show that the voltage regulation in the CBAN can help to control and mitigate voltage deviations effectively. The simulations are performed with a detailed model of a Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG).
