Estimates of PV hosting capacity and battery installtions for Switzerland accounting for grid constraints.

Package version
Description In this work, we estimate photovoltaic (PV) hosting potentials for Switzerland while accounting for the voltage and ampacity constraints of the medium voltage networks.
Notes We develop a method which estimated the the medium voltage networks of whole Switzerland in the first step and then we ran optimal power flow to size the PV installations through Switzerland. We account for the geographical variability of the PV productions, given by the capacity factors, in our analysis. Moreover, we also size and site the battery installations required to overcome the grid constraints so as to exceed the PV hosting potentials.
