Abstract

This paper verifies, for distribution systems with residential photovoltaic generators (PV), the distribution loss reduction effect on the loss minimum configuration selected from all possible configurations. Methods that determine the loss minimum configuration of distribution systems have been developed. However, loss reduction effects and guidelines for future PV deployment to effectively reduce distribution loss have not been discussed extensively, because of difficulties in enumerating possible configurations and in comparing distribution losses for each. We have previously proposed a method for selecting loss minimum configurations from among all possible configurations. In this paper, we use the proposed method to verify the loss reduction effect on loss minimum configurations of a distribution system composed of 468 switches for three PV penetration patterns. We also evaluate the loss minimum configuration by comparing its distribution loss with that of other configurations and provide a guideline for future PV penetration position and system operation.
