The PV Grid Integration Group aims to address and solve one of the most challenging topics of power grid operators and regulators in the future: how to ensure a stable and reliable grid operation with an increasing share of electricity generation coming from widely distributed and variable solar power. The group’s research includes analysis of electric power grids in their entirety as well as addressing the multiple levels of interdependencies between the distributed generation, the variability of the resource and the user/demand side. Potential interactions between the grid control centre and the PV systems (making them an active part of the power grid) and energy storage solutions are taken into account. The group also leverages the forecasting algorithms developed in the Solar Potential and Energy Meteorology Group.
