The integration of soft open point (SOP) effectively improves the flexibility of active distribution networks (ADNs). However, in practical operation, accurate network parameters are difficult to obtain and the operation state changes rapidly with distributed generators (DGs). With the development of information technologies, massive operation data can be acquired in ADNs. How to utilize multi-source data has become the key to realize the intelligent operation of ADNs. This paper proposes a data-driven operation strategy of SOP based on model-free adaptive control (MFAC). First, considering the inaccurate parameters and frequent change of operation states, a data-driven framework is formulated for the real-time operation of SOP. Then, the operation strategies of multiple SOPs are further improved with inter-area coordination. The results of case studies show that driven by measurement data, the potential benefits of SOPs are explored to adaptively respond to system state changes and improve the operational performance of ADNs.
