Distributed energy resources influence the power grid due to the low visibility of network operators towards distribution system. These resources cause reactive power imbalance, and thus puts a question mark on voltage loading of the grid. The paper discusses these effects of distributed energy resources on the node voltages of an Italian distribution grid. The paper analyses these effects on node voltages, and explains the common procedure and issues of reactive power provision by conventional synchronous generators, mostly through conventional coal and combined cycle power plants. To avoid these issues, the paper then investigates among different compensation ...
