Abstract

Connection of Distributed Generation (DG) units to a distribution network will result in a local voltage increase. As there will be a maximum on the allowable voltage increase, this will limit the maximum allowable penetration level of DG. By reactive power compensation (by the DG unit itself) a significant increase in allowable penetration level can be achieved. In this paper this and several methods (overrating and generation curtailment) are investigated to achieve a further increase in allowable penetration level.
