Formatted abstract
A constant or voltage-dependent load model is usually assumed in most distributed generation (DG) planning studies. However, this paper proposes several different types of time-varying voltage-dependent load models to determine the penetration level of photovoltaic (PV) units in a distribution network. Here, a new analytical expression is first proposed to size a PV unit, which can supply active and reactive powers. This expression is based on the derivation of a multiobjective index (IMO) that is formulated as a combination of three indices, namely active power loss, reactive power loss and voltage deviation. The expression is then adapted to allocate PV units while considering the time-varying load models and probabilistic PV generation. The effectiveness of the proposed approach was validated on 69- and 33-bus test distribution systems. The results showed that PV allocation with different types of time-varying load models can produce dissimilar penetration levels.
