Abstract

The integration of solar photovoltaic (PV) and electric vehicles (EVs) is increasing apace in residential low voltage networks. This rapid deployment has raised concerns to the distribution system operators (DSO) due to the technical issues associated with the high penetration of these technologies. In addition, battery energy storage systems (BESS) have attracted many prosumers due to their capabilities in cutting electricity bills by achieving a profitable energy arbitrage between the PV overgeneration and demand. In this paper, the impact of BESS deployment on a wide scale at the residential level is analysed for different operation strategies. Three BESS strategies are simulated for one-year for a residential feeder located in Northern Ireland. The results show that the integration of BESS can support the network by mitigating the negative impacts of PVs and EVs. However, their unsupervised operation on a wide scale can disadvantage network operation. Hence, heuristic management-based incentive schemes should be established by DSOs that assure safe network operation and prosumers profitability.
