The increased penetration of grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) systems in low-voltage (LV) grids creates concerns about overvoltage in these grids. The proposed methods to prevent overvoltage, such as reactive power absorption by PV inverters and active power management of customers, focus on decreasing the voltage rise along LV feeders, and the potential of active medium-voltage to low-voltage (MV/LV) transformers for overvoltage prevention has not been thoroughly investigated.
