In this paper, the impact of residential distributed energy resources (DER) on the power quality is investigated in four feeder types of the electrical LV distribution network in Flanders, Belgium. The investigated power quality issues are over-voltage, under-voltage and unbalance. The results of the simulations are discussed in detail. The paper leads to an estimation of the compliance to the power quality standard EN 50160, and a summary of issues in the distribution grids when increasing the amount of DER.
