Abstract:Active and Reactive Power Regulation in Domestic grid-Connected PV Systems
In the world, a huge spread of production units fueled by renewable sources not programmable is occurring. As a consequence, in a few years, a very rapid transformation from centralized generation system to distributed generation system is occurred.
This has caused problems difficult to solve in the distribution networks as the deterioration of voltage profiles along the lines, accidental disconnection of the interface protection systems of the inverter, problems of stability to the electric system. The reasons of these problems are to be found mainly in the non-adjustment of the distribution lines, in the role played by grid connected PV system and in uncertainty of renewable sources.
Conventional PV system only supplies the instantaneous maximum power from PV array to the grid through an inverter. Distribution companies cannot directly control distributed generators, and this makes the availability of electricity produced by GD plants an unknown variable difficult to estimate.
Technical standards introduce important changes regarding the participation of PV systems, depending of the size of the PV systems, to both frequency and voltage regulations. In this speech, algorithms for voltage and frequency regulation will be presented. They, along with a detailed model of a photovoltaic system, allow to study the impact of renewable sources on the distribution networks and the interaction of grid connected systems with the grid in the presence of over/under-voltage or over-frequency.
