Impacts of energy storage in distribution grids with high penetration of photovoltaic power
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › Scientific › peer-review
The study indicates that using a storage of 1kWh per 1kWp PV may reduce the PV induced over-voltage by 30-100% depending on the case. The benefits were more distinctive in a southern climate than in northern latitudes where the mismatch between solar output and load is more severe at the seasonal scale. With careful siting of the PV units in the grid, significant benefits can be achieved even without storage. These benefits are achieved by placing PV systems in strong grid locations and avoiding the weak ones.
