Abstract

This report details work carried out by the University of Strathclyde (UoS) to help SP Energy Networks (SPEN) with mass deployment of domestic PV systems on an already constrained distribution network. These installations were proposed by the Berwickshire Housing Association (BHA) and installed within the period February 2015 – January 2016. The key objective of the report is to provide an overview of the analysis used to investigate which proposed PV systems were able to be installed, and what effects they would have on the network. This report is produced as part of the Accelerating Renewable Connections (ARC) project for SPEN, which investigates alternative methods to allow integration of new DG connections onto a distribution network that previously was believed to be at full capacity.
