Abstract

This work presents a strategy for increasing the installation of electric vehicles and solar panels in low-voltage grids, while obeying voltage variation constraints. Our approach employs minimization of active power losses for coordinating consumption and generation of power, as well as reactive power control to maintain satisfactory grid operation. Numerical case studies illustrate how our approach can significantly increase installation of both electric vehicles and solar panels, while avoiding unsatisfactory over- and under-voltages throughout the grid.
