Contributions of Single–Phase Rooftop PVs on Short Circuits Faults in Residential Feeders
MetadataShow full item record
Sensitivity analysis results are presented to investigate the presence of single–phase rooftop Photovoltaic Cells (PV) in low voltage residential feeders, during short circuits in the overhead lines. The PV rating and location in the feeder and the fault location are considered as the variables of the sensitivity analysis. The single–phase faults are the main focus of this paper and the PV effect on fault current, current in distribution transformer secondary and the voltage at each bus of the feeder are investigated, during fault. Furthermore, to analyze the bus voltages and fault current in the presence of multiple PVs, each with different rating and location, a stochastic analysis is carried out to investigate the expected probability density function of these parameters, considering the uncertainties of PV rating and location as well as fault location.
