This chapter deals two methodologies for optimal voltage control. The first methodology related to determining the optimal transformer tap settings in radial (rural) distribution networks is based on the space and time decomposition of the voltage-control problem. Thereafter, the Volt/Var control is formulated as a nonlinear complex optimization problem with constraints and solved by using metaheuristic optimization methods.
