For demonstrating future smart grid concepts the MetaPV project, funded by the European Commission, is investigating the additional services of smart photovoltaic (PV) systems for grid support and hosting capacity extension. In this paper the concept of hosting capacity is introduced and illustrated to analyze the impact of expected PV development scenarios on the distribution network selected for the demonstration. Investigations showed that the hosting capacity is currently almost fully… CONTINUE READING
