Abstract: The share of power generated from solar photovoltaic (SPV) is increasing drastically worldwide to meet the ever increasing energy demands. The power generated from the solar PV is mainly connected to low voltage (LV) distribution systems. However, the power generated from solar PV is intermittent in nature as a results it creates a problem in grid stability and reliability. The technical impacts of high PV penetration into distribution systems are mainly on the current and voltage profiles, quality of power, power balancing, protection, losses in system, power factor, etc. To address aforesaid issues lot of research is required, therefore an extensive literature review is performed considering the current status, impacts and various technical challenges due to high PV contribution. In addition, the proposed study also provides the insights to the possible solutions for voltage rise problem due to high PV penetration in LV distribution system.
