    This paper investigates the impact of unbalanced loads and SWT penetrations over three phases on voltage violation of residential distribution networks (RDNs). In this research, the point estimate method (PEM) is applied to identify the voltage violation of the network with various SWT penetration and distribution scenarios, taking into account the time varying characteristics of loads and wind speeds. The results quantify the voltage violation that will help distribution network operators to assess and constrain SWT impact on network configuration and operation.
