This paper evaluates the technical aspects of grid-connected photovoltaic systems and distributed energy resources (DER) interconnection grid codes. An online survey targeted the key stakeholders and industry experts have been conducted to investigate advanced inverters potential of providing DER ancillary services to distribution grids. The survey results are discussed in details and recommendations for supporting reactive power support of DER inverters and DER interconnection codes and enhancements are presented.
