What is it about?

factors affect the end-user voltages and voltage unbalance in the LV distribution network. These factors are divided into active factors such as loads' rating, loads' types, and PVs ratings, and passive factors such as the number of buses and grounding resistances. Furthermore, the paper investigates the arrangement of loads and rooftop PVs that cause the highest voltage–rise and voltage unbalance.

Why is it important?

knowledge of both these factors and scenarios are used as a guide for future studies. Furthermore, it identifies the most and the least significant factors and discusses the worst power flow scenario in the distribution network that causes the highest overvoltage and voltage-unbalance.


I hope that this article will inspire researchers to design new methods to mitigate both overvoltage and voltage unbalance together.
