This paper analyzed the temporary overvoltage (TOV) problem in the network distribution system. The TOV shows different patterns depending on the type of distributed energy resources (DERs) and the grounding method. In particular, the inverter-based distributed generations (IBDGs) also show different patterns as inverter's dynamic characteristics depending on the classification of grid forming (GFM) and grid following (GFL). The paper reviewed existing factors affecting TOV according to the inverter type. In addition, the TOV was simulated in various topologies of distribution systems, indicating that distribution system topology can solve the TOV problem regardless of the inverter type. This paper compared the TOV in the radial distribution system and the networked distribution system (NDS), and as a result, the operation through NDS can be a solution to the TOV problem. In addition, TOV in the NDS is analyzed through simulation, considering various elements of the distribution system to prove a more robust solution.
