However, the storage of electricity has been relatively complex and expensive. Today, with the changing ways in which electricity is generated and used, increased penetration of(More)
Rapid growth of grid-connected photovoltaic distributed generation (PV-DG) provides many benefits such as clean energy, reduced emissions and creation of new green jobs. However, given its intermittent nature, large scale penetration of PV-DG may challenge the quality and reliability of the grid. This paper evaluates the impact of PV-DG on distribution(More)
