In this paper, distributed energy-storage systems (ESSs) are proposed to solve the voltage rise/drop issues in low-voltage (LV) distribution networks with a high penetration of rooftop photovoltaics (PVs). During the peak PV generation period, the voltages are mitigated by charging the ESSs, and the stored energy is discharged for voltage support during the peak load period. The impact of storage devices integrated with the PV source on feeder voltages is investigated in detail. A coordinated control method, which includes distributed and localized controls, is proposed for distributed ESSs. The distributed control using the consensus algorithm regulates the feeder voltages within the required limits, while the localized control regulates the state of charge (SoC) of each ESS within the desired SoC range. The entire control structure ensures voltage regulation while effectively utilizing storage capacity under various operation conditions. The proposed control method is evaluated in LV distribution networks, and the simulation results validate the effectiveness of this method.
