Grid modernization strategies often focus on replacing aging distribution control equipment with state-of-the-art devices capable of remote monitoring, communication, and control. However, wholesale replacement of the existing distribution infrastructure may not be practical or economical. Additionally, even with improved capabilities, “smart” devices may still be ignorant of changes in circuit topology. This paper presents a model-based distribution control scheme that is independent of circuit topology and integrates legacy and modern control equipment. Simulation results indicate the proposed method can improve circuit performance under both normal and abnormal conditions.
