Voltage control is a growing issue in distribution networks operation, due to the increase in load and also distributed generation. In this work model predictive control (MPC) is proposed as a better solution as compared to conventional ones to deal with this problem. A fast MPC algorithm is used to allow online optimization of voltage profile. the algorithm is tested on a 20 kV distribution network.
