Impacts of Photovoltaics on Low Voltage Networks : a Case Study for the North West of England

  title={Impacts of Photovoltaics on Low Voltage Networks : a Case Study for the North West of England},
  author={Alejandro Navarro and Luis F. Ochoa and dan. randles},
This work proposes a Monte Carlo-based technique to assess the impacts of different PV penetrations on a real LV network for the North West of England, considering 5-min resolution models for domestic load and PV generation. The impacts of PV location are analysed through two scenarios based on location: closer to and further from the distribution transformer. Voltage impacts are measured using EN50160 and the thermal capabilities are examined through a utilisation factor. Additionally, the… CONTINUE READING
