dc.description.abstract The integration challenges associated with the widespread adoption of the photovoltaic generation can be divided into operational and the maintenance issues. Work done in recent years has addressed issues like voltage rise and unbalance. Less attention was directed to the maintenance challenges like accelerated aging of mechanically controlled voltage support assets under rapidly changing conditions. In particular, there is need for analysis on the mechanism of accelerated wear and tear of devices such as on-load tap changers and capacitor banks exposed to rapid voltage fluctuations. Such an analysis relies on development of lifetime models of switching devices to study the impact of increased stress, whether electrical or mechanical, on operational life. This article focuses on developing such models and proposes the framework to study the impact of non-scheduled distributed generation on aging of mechanically-switched devices commonly used in distribution feeders.
