### Abstract

Livelab from Alliander is a program which started to measure electrical and power quality data in the Dutch distribution network since 2013. This paper presents a methodology to generate the residential load profiles by cumulative distribution function (CDF) based on Livelab measured data, then applying Monte Carlo simulation method, a statistic three phase Load Flow program is developed in order to investigate the voltage level and network losses (harmonic loss is considered) of a typical low voltage (LV) network with the consideration of variable loads and random locations. Then, the prospective impact to voltage level and losses due to the grid-connected photovoltaic power generation systems (PV) and electrical vehicles (EV) are discussed, Monte Carlo simulations are done with the different penetration rates of PV and EV, maximum capacity of grid-connected PVs and EVs can be estimated and the possible network losses are calculated.
