Distribution systems are designed to operate in radial mode (the simplest system topology) without any generation on the system, unidirectional power flow from the distribution substation to the customers via main feeder(s) and its(their) laterals within a specified range of operating points. The rapid growth of PV module installations on the distribution systems could not only offset the load but also cause a significant impact on the flow of power (active and reactive), voltage level, and fault currents, therefore; concerns about their potential impacts on the stability and operation of the power system have become one of the important issues and may create barriers to their future expansion. The most likely potential impact of the high PV penetration level is losing the voltage regulation, because it is directly related to the amount of reverse power flow. The main goal of this thesis is to approximate the maximum level of PV penetration which the system can accommodate without any impact on the voltage profile, stability, and operation.
