Increasing the Hosting Capacity of Distribution Grids by Implementing Residential PV Storage Systems and Reactive Power Control (Camacho Rascon et al. 2016)

The rapidly increasing number of implemented photovoltaic (PV) systems in the German distribution grid in recent years has led to power quality issues due to the intermittent generation and reverse power flows in periods of low demand. In order to decrease this impact, different solutions are being investigated. The aim of this study is to analyze the maximum possible grid relief by using residential PV storage systems and different reactive power control strategies from the viewpoint of a distribution system owner. To compare the different voltage control method scenarios the hosting capacity is used as a performance indicator.
