Abstract







This paper presents a voltage analysis of an LV network saturated with PV micro installations beyond the MV/LV transformer rated power. It has been shown that in adverse circumstances, the voltage may rise as much as 10% over the rating. An all-year-round voltage hazard assessment methodology is presented. Directions of efforts to limit the adverse PV micro installation-related voltage phenomena are identified.
