AbstractIntegration of photovoltaic systems (PV) into the low voltage distribution networks (LVDN) is constantly increasing. Electric vehicles (EV) and plug in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) are using the infrastructure of the LVDN for charging. The number of such vehicles connected for charging is increasing. When engineers designed LVDNs in the past, dispersed generation and EV were not accounted. This transition in generation and consumption will affect the voltage characteristics and will increase the inefficiency in a given LVDN. Simulation model for the energy needs of EV and PHEV is presented. The algorithm proposed for analyzing the acceptable penetration level of EV and PV in LVDN is based on stochastic method. The standard EN50160 can be used for results evaluation.
