Title: Real time voltage regulation through gather and broadcast techniques

Abstract

An example device includes a processor configured to receive a plurality of voltage measurements corresponding to nodes in a distribution network, and determine, for each respective node: a value of a first coefficient, based on a previous value of the first coefficient, a minimum voltage value for the node, and a voltage measurement that corresponds to the node, and a value of a second coefficient based on a previous value of the second coefficient, a maximum voltage value for the node, and the voltage measurement. The processor of the example device is also configured to cause an inverter-interfaced energy resource connected to the distribution network to modify its output power based on the value of the first coefficient for each node and the value of the second coefficient for each node.
