Photovoltaic Generation in Low Voltage Networks for Sustainable Energy Systems

2017-11-14 @ 15:00 - 16:00

Electricity distribution networks were designed to deliver power unilaterally from central electricity generating plants to the customer load centers. With integration of photovoltaic generators close to the load centers, legacy distribution networks face multiple challenges. This seminar shall discuss problems such as over-voltages, overloads, increased losses, unbalance voltages, reactive power flow, and hyperactivity of voltage regulating devices due to increasing amount of PV generation in low-voltage networks. In the given context, role of battery energy storage systems becomes significant for alleviating these problems. A study based on a real-life example on effective utilization of battery storage system to improve the daily operations of low-voltage networks with high penetration of PV generation will be discussed. Major findings from the on-going work at University of Saskatchewan on techno-economic feasibility study to improve hosting capacity of remote feeders in Northwest Saskatchewan shall also be presented.
