Special Session on Photovoltaic (PV) Systems Integration Issues

The International Energy Agency reported that the Photovoltaic (PV) power cumulative installed capacity had reached 7.8 GW in 2007, with a growth of 40 % in comparison to the previous year. Most of the installations are for grid connected applications. There is an increasing awareness of the principles of sustainable community design, including solar cities initiatives to maximize the use of solar energy use in residences and buildings.  Additional constraints have been raised due to the rapid deployment of utility-scale PV projects that are now connected to the electricity distribution systems.  This session aims to encourage discussion and foster information exchange between the research community and industry to address technical barriers and offer solutions for PV power systems integration.  Key target areas of this Panel Session include:

  • Utility Scale PV Systems
  • Building Integrated PV
  • Distribution System Configuration of Urban and Suburban PV systems
  • Modeling and Simulation of PV Systems
  • Novel Inverter Control and Protection
  • PV Hybrid and Minigrid Systems
  • PV, Energy Storage and other Combined Energy Resources in Microgrid Systems
  • PV Standards and Codes
  • PV Market Trends and Demonstration Projects
