Large SPV integration in LV grids is limited by a
series of grid bottlenecks, such as voltage magnitude
variations at the end of radial feeders, overloading
the network components and voltage phase unbalance.
This work analyzes how the introduction of EVs in
the LV network can potentially solve these grid bottlenecks
and increase the feeder PV hosting capacity,
in an example set of the Italian case study. Different
EV charging scenarios are proposed, based
on the present electricity tariffs for Italian residential
customers (Time-of-Day, Net Metering functionality)
and future possible developments such as
the adoption of voltage droop control functionality
for the EV charger, the introduction of real
time pricing in the distribution network and the use
of EV’s Vehicle-to-Grid functionality.
