The continued interest in the distributed generation (DG) sources in recent years is leading to the growth of a number of generators connected to distribution networks. The steady-state voltage rise resulting from the connection of these generators can be a major obstacle at the lower voltage levels. Present network design practice is to limit the generator capacity to a level at which the upper voltage limit is not exceeded. This reduces the efficiency of DG system. This paper proposes a coordinated voltage control scheme using fuzzy logic based power factor controller, for distribution network with multiple Distributed generation systems. In the proposed scheme individual generators participate in voltage regulation of the distribution system, based on their participation factor determined using sensitivity analysis. The simulation results presented in the paper show the effectiveness of the method.
