The electric distribution systems of the 21st century are characterized by the huge diffusion of distributed generations (DG) units. Their always increasing number, however, asks for new and advanced technical solutions for management and optimization of low voltage grids, whose design and efficiency is still strictly dependent to old operative conditions and schemes. In this paper, a methodology aimed to achieve power flow control and optimization on low voltage distribution systems by means of an Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) is presented. Tests have been made on three different operating conditions and their numerical results demonstrate how this device can be positively applied even to electric distribution networks in order to solve some typical issues such as loss reduction, power flows inversion and so on.
