Application of phasor measurement unit (PMU) at distribution networks provide new options for voltage-to-power sensitivity estimation and voltage regulation. A novel voltage control method for distribution networks using PMU based sensitivity estimation is proposed in this paper. The voltage control records are extracted from the historical synchronized phasor measurements. The voltage-to-power sensitivities to reflect the relation of voltage change and power fluctuation are estimated with the obtained voltage control records. In addition to linear parameter, parameters to match the nonlinear relation between voltage and power variation and to track the operation conditions are introduced in the fitting model for sensitivity estimation to improve the accuracy of the voltage control strategy. A voltage control scheme is proposed based on the sensitivities estimated in which the measurements of partial nodes at the distribution network are the only needed data. Case studies on IEEE 33-node test feeder verify the correctness and effectiveness of the proposed method.
