Abstract 6.6 kV overhead distribution systems are currently constructed in Japan as radial networks. The load imbalance of each feeder therefore has a negative impact on voltage stability. On the other hand, disconnecting distributed generators with faults causes line overload or under-voltage. Therefore, controlling line voltage and line power flow on the distribution system is critical for the open access of indefinite numbers of distributed generators. We are investigating a new loop or mesh structure distribution system to maximise network capacity. This paper describes a control method for a loop power flow controller (LPC) focusing on 1 line-to-ground (LG) fault states.
