Title:Implementation of voltage regulation control scheme in distributed computing platform
Author(s):Begara, Diego
Contributor(s):Domínguez-García, Alejandro
Abstract:Modern networks are built following a centralized architecture that relies on a constant communication between each node and the controller node. That node will then regulate the network. The approach we are taking throughout this project is implementing a distributed architecture. In this architecture we eliminate the controller node. We will substitute it by simpler controllers, Arduino boards, in each of the nodes. These Arduinos will be in charge of computation and communication with one another. The algorithms that regulate the network will be run in the Arduinos. They will work as a neuronal network in a collaborative structure. This part of the project is based on the implementation of the voltage control algorithm into the Arduino code that will be implemented in the network. This code is tested with the Typhoon HIL simulator in one of the ECE laboratories. The goal is to code the algorithm so that it can work with any possible network we want to simulate. Complementary goals are to try to improve the robustness of the algorithms and improve functions in order to shorten the computational time. For testing we have implemented the code into a 6-node example. Comparing the results obtained we can assure that the best approach for this case is implementing a distributed architecture which will give a more reliable faster recovery time.
