Abstract
Finally, the impacts of adding distributed PV generation to a residential distribution system are explored. Power Systems Toolbox is again used to simulate PV generation based on real data gathered from several solar radiation sensors. The sensors collected their data on the same days, with slightly different orientations. The results of power flow in simulations at various levels of penetration with assorted orientations of panels on homes are shown. The demand curves used in this model are based on the standard residential model. This analysis serves as a prediction of the impact of increased distributed solar generation on residential distribution systems.
