Abstract/Summary:


The present work is showing a way of mitigating some of the actual LV grid problems (overload of the neutral wire or local transformer, overvoltage, voltage unbalance) by use of three phase PV inverters. These have the advantage that they can control the power on each phase individually. By doing that new possibilities are opening such as local voltage or power balancing. These will relief the stress on the LV transformer and neutral conductors and moreover decrease the losses by increasing single phase local consumption.
