Importance of voltage regulation in connections between transmission lines and solar panels
- Sep 18, 2021 7:57 am GMT
Solar energy from photovoltaic (PV) is among the fastest developing renewable energy systems worldwide. The trend would continue in the next few years, especially for the small- and medium-sized PV plants, given the ever-increasing electricity price and decreasing technology cost.
Among the installed PV plants, most of them are situated at the distribution systems and bring various operational challenges such as power quality and power flow management. One of the biggest problems for PV penetration integration - is the high voltage at low voltage (LV) grids.
Followed by PV adoption is grid integration. With the high amount of PV installed, the variable PV outputs bring issues on supply security. In addition, a large part of the installation takes place in the residential areas, where the grids are not initially prepared for interconnecting generation units. Issues such as voltage quality, congestion, efficiency, are emerging.
Voltage control is one of the urgent issues in distribution systems for solar PV integration and we propose simple and cheap solutions for those issues – SMART -Optimizer ECOD
