Abstract: The aim of this short communication is to present an easily applicable methodology to calculate maximum distributed generation (DG) capacity in radial low-voltage feeders. The methodology indicates the highest capacity that can be installed at a fixed point in the feeder for which the voltage is kept within the permissible limits in critical scenarios, i.e. high generation and low load. The concept is based on the main findings of previous studies identifying the points of connections where the voltage may be exceeded. The provisional voltage profile of a line with a new DG is strongly related to the topology and the voltage profile before the new connection. The methodology can be applied in any radial feeder with or without existing DG installations.
