bution network level for improving the short-term voltage sta-

bility using the DVS in several studies [4][7]. Further studies

need to be carried out regarding the impact of PVs on the short-

term voltage stability of the transmission system by consid-

ering components in both transmission and subtransmission net-

works. In particular, it is important to consider the effects of in-

duction motor (IM) loads as well as the impedance between an

extra-high voltage bus and a load center for the analysis of the

short-term voltage stability [8], [9].

This paper describes the impact of the dynamic behavior

of PVs on the short-term voltage stability of the transmission

system with numerical examples. In this study, we focus on PV

systems connected to load centers at medium- and low- voltage

levels and consider the components in both transmission and

subtransmission networks. Section II presents the PV model

used in this study. The model considers the control system

The integration of the PV system severely impairs the

short-term voltage stability when the PV system shuts off.

This is because the total capacity of the shunt capacitors

Numerical examples are carried out for the ve-machine ve-

by reference to a test system published in [14]. To analyze the

impact of PV on the short-term voltage stability, the impedance

represented with the lighter color, is newly considered, unlike

conventional test systems used for a transient stability analysis.

At each load center, we assume the installation of PV sys-

to the leading power-factor operation under the assumption that

the 50% of the PV systems at each load center are utility-scale

PV power plants, and the rest are the small-scale PV systems in

the residential area.

Table IX compares the CCT under 3LG faults at various lo-

cations. The CCT is used as an index for the short-term voltage

stability because a voltage collapse occurs within 3 s when the

system is unstable. The notation represents the 3LG

fault that occurs near bus and is cleared by opening one circuit

of the line . Here, we select fault locations where the CCT

in case I is less than 0.07 sa value that is close to the general

fault clearing time in Japan. As summarized in Table IX, CCTs

are improved by the PV operation at the leading power factor

and by adding the DVS capability. In particular, the DVS capa-

bility signicantly helps in maintaining the stability of the entire

power system.
