This paper proposes a coordinated optimal control strategy of PV generators and air-conditioning loads, in order to handle the possible voltage beyond limit issues resulting from high penetration of PV generators in the distribution networks. This strategy is achieved via coordinately considering the node voltage sensitivity and the adjustment-compensation bid model, to improve the economy of the whole system. As a result, the shortage of the PVs' reactive power control capability is

The case study using an IEEE standard 33-node system, which is further updated with the installation of 5 PV generators and 5 air-conditioning loads, validates the correctness and effectiveness of the proposed control strategy.
