The recent rapid uptake of residential solar photovoltaic (PV) installations provides many challenges for electricity distribution networks designed for one-way power flow from the distribution company to the residential customer. For gridconnected installations, intermittent generation as well as large amounts of generation during low load periods can lead to a degradation of power quality and even outages due to overvoltage conditions. In this paper we present four control methodologies to mitigate these difficulties using small-scale distributed battery storage. These four approaches represent three different control architectures: centralized, decentralized, and distributed control. These approaches are validated and compared using data on load and generation profiles from customers in an Australian electricity distribution network.
