The proposed control allows reducing the whole reactive power injection/absorption, maximizing, at the same time, the active power production.This paper proposes a coordinated local control approach that allows distribution system operator (DSO) and independent power producers (IPPs) to obtain benefits offering the voltage regulation ancillary service to DSO and maximizing allowable active power production for each RES unit belonging to the same IPP. The control is based on a cooperation of data transfer between DSO and IPPs. In order to realize such cooperation, a nonlinear constrained optimization problem is formulated and solved by sequential quadratic programming (SQP) method.
