Photovoltaic systems are increasingly integrated with the low voltage (LV) and medium voltage (MV) distribution network. This situation has already started to produce significant challenges for the distribution system operators due to the energy quality impacts associated with their integration with the network, such as increases in voltage levels, harmonics, intermittence, bidirectional power flow and frequency variations . In this context, Hosting Capacity (HC) studies focused on distribution systems are increasingly relevant. Aiming to contribute with studies related to this area, this work presents a methodology for obtaining HC in distribution systems using the open source software OpenDSS. A study will be carried out for different scenarios of a test distribution system provided by the IEEE, the IEEE European Low Voltage Test Feeder (STDE-IEEE).
