Overvoltage Prevention in Residential Feeders with High Penetration of Photovoltaics
Overvoltages in low voltage (LV) feeders with high penetration of photovoltaics (PV) are usually prevented by limiting feeder's PV capacity to very conservative values, even if the critical periods rarely occur. This paper discusses the possiblity of overvoltages in residental feeders with high penetration of PV, and the main factors that may lead to overvoltages. A state of the art review is performed regarding strategies that could be used to reduce the likelihood and magnitude of overvoltages, along with the main solutions for voltage control that can be applied in LV feeders with high penetration of PV.
