Voltage instability is considered as one of the main threats to secure operation of power systems around the world. Grid connected renewable energy-based generation are deploying in recent years for many economic and environmental reasons. This type of generation could have significant impact on power system voltage stability given the nature of the primary source for generation and the technology used for energy conversion. This paper presents the results of an investigation of static voltage stability in heavily stressed IEEE-14 bus test system with large-scale PV integration. The study focused on the impact of large-scale PV penetrations and dynamic VAr placements on voltage stability of the sub-transmission system. For this study, the test system loads are modeled as the summer peak load of a realistic system. The comparison of STATCOM and SVC performance with large-scale PV is also discussed.
