Power distribution grids with a high share of photovoltaic (PV) generation can be subject to severe voltage issues. The realistic simulation of such systems is therefore important for planning purposes and the evaluation of technical counter measures. This paper suggests a method to generate realistic power time series for a given set of PV generators within a distribution grid to provide the necessary input data for such simulations.
