Decentralized Energy Storage in Residential Feeders with Photovoltaics

Francesco Marra; Guangya Yang    Technical University of Denmark


In this chapter, the role of decentralized energy storage in residential feeders with Photovoltaic (PV) is addressed. The increasing penetration of PV power generation is more and more contributing on relieving the overall loading of (low voltage) LV distribution grids by increasing the rate of local generation and consumption of houses and larger buildings. However, LV grids have been originally designed to accommodate unidirectional power flow from the distribution grid to the consumers. With high PV generation, the power flow may invert its direction going from downstream towards the ...
