Distributed Generation (DG) may bring about voltage violation, especially the ones that are powered by renewable energy resources. In order to cope with this problem, this paper proposes a method to coordinate the dispatchable DG with voltage control devices by using Tabu Search (TS) algorithm. In addition, probabilistic load flow calculation based on Monte Carlo simulations is performed for thorough evaluation of the uncertainties from renewable DG and loads. The proposed method is demonstrated in IEEE 34-bus distribution test system.
