Abstract

This paper, which is the second part of a two-part series, considers the influence of microgeneration technologies on the overall network performance and quality of supply of low-voltage residential customers in future “smart grids”. The paper uses the network models and demand-side management (DSM) scenarios developed in the Part 1 paper to further assess changes in active/reactive power flows, system losses, voltage profiles and harmonic emissions due to the combined effects of implementing microgeneration, energy storage and DSM.
