Title: Sequential Mitigation Solutions to Enable Distributed PV Grid Integration: Preprint

Abstract

This paper provides a method to assess the impact of multiple mitigation solutions including distribution grid upgrades and advanced control technologies on increasing distributed PV penetration in distribution feeders, and thus paves the way to estimate the costs needed for reaching certain PV penetration level. Based on three assumptions of creating increasing PV penetration scenarios, this paper first studies the distribution impact of PV power and quantifies the PV hosting capacity in distribution feeders. Then, it studies multiple mitigation solutions to increase PV penetration on distribution feeders. These mitigation solutions are implemented in a sequential manner according to their typical costs. The proposed study is demonstrated on two representative distribution feeders.
