Power distribution systems are in the state of transition from passive to active networks due to the rising penetration level of distributed generators (DGs). One of the technical challenges of active networks is to maintain an acceptable voltage level. This problem has initiated many researchers to control network voltage profile. Several approaches to mitigate the voltage issues include the use of coordinated or centralized and decentralized methods. Both methods have been proven to be able to alleviate the voltage rise issue in distribution systems with DGs. This paper presents a literature review on the various voltage control methods that have been implemented in active distribution networks.
