Photovoltaic System Penetration on Voltage Profile, System Loss and Transmission Line Power Flow

Rohollah Abdollahi
Abstract
In many different ways, solar energy has been studied in many ways. Continuous reduction in the prices of solar photovoltaic systems makes solar energy more efficient compared to other types of renewable energies. The main points of the use of solar panels are subject to high penetration of electric power supply for remote areas. Considering this concept rather than the design and fabrication of transmission lines, it reduces the total power system losses and increases the reliability and overall system stability of the system. However, distributed power generation may cause significant voltage regulation and problems in the power system. This paper examines the effect of high penetration photovoltaic systems on voltage profile, system loss, and transmission lines power flow. The IEEE 9 bus system is considered as a standard test system for analysis. The simulation was carried out with the help of ETAP v16.0.0, which is a very convenient tool for the simulation and analysis of the power system.
