Soft Open Point (SOP) is a distribution-level power electronic device with the capability of real-time and accurate active and reactive power flow control. With the increasing amount of distributed generation (DG) integrated into electrical distribution networks, various operational problems, such as excessive power losses, over-voltage and thermal overloading issues become gradually remarkable. Using SOP is an innovative approach for power flow and voltage controls, as well as to accommodate large DG penetrations. The performance evaluation model of SOP in multi-objective operation optimization of a distribution network is developed in MATLAB, and applied to a modified 69-bus benchmark test system.

This dataset contains details of the test network (topology, load, locations of SOP and DG, etc). It also contains the Pareto optimal solutions of the network operation, and the corresponding SOP optimal set-points, with DG penetration increases from 0 to 200% in the network.
