Design and Modelling of a Three-Phase Grid-Connected Photovoltaic for Low Voltage Network using PSCAD Software
Keywords:Three-phase grid-connected PV, distribution network, distributed generation, PSCAD software
This paper presents the design and modeling of a Three-Phase Grid-Connected Photovoltaic (PV) generator module in PSCAD/EMTDC. The model is useful for simulation studies of grid interface applications. The validity of the PV model developed has been verified using a set of case studies. The output power from the PV module can be controlled through the PI controller. All the simulation study has been done in the PSCAD/EMTDC simulation software. The simulation results show that the simulation models are robust with acceptable performance in terms of power sharing between the load and the grid.
