Impact of Stochastically Distributed Renewable PV Generation on Distribution Network
Additional Document Info
2016 Power Systems Computation Conference. Small-scale and decentralized renewable distributed generation (DG) systems, especially PV systems, will soon be dispersed in distribution networks. The objective of this study is to present tools and algorithms useful for planning distribution networks enhanced by randomly distributed DG. To remove the uncertainties of the location, the capacity, and the field orientation of randomly distributed PV systems, a stochastic simulation algorithm is implemented. The stochastic simulation analyzes the impact of stochastically dispersed residential PV systems from the perspective of energy, especially regarding peak power, electricity generation costs, and emissions, and quantifies the effects of the method of variance reduction, including importance sampling.
