Presents and discusses different aspects required to assess the residential PV hosting capacity of distribution networks. It explains and demonstrates the benefits but also the potential challenges from exploiting the capabilities of smart inverters (Volt Watt, Volt var, export limits) and residential storage systems to increase hosting capacity. Real case studies from Australia are used to demonstrate the quantification of PV hosting capacity considering potential strategies to make the most of smart inverters and storage.
