This project focuses on the large scale deployment of photovoltaic (PV) systems through improving their grid integration. The driving forces of this ambitious project focus on three issues of critical significance that inhibit the massive deployment of PVs:

(a) the variable/insolation-dependent nature of PV generation,

(b) the problems associated with massive distributed generation (e.g., grid unbalance, harmonics),

(c) the need to develop appropriate fault ride through (FRT) solutions to allow them to support the grid during faults.


The major objective of this project is to develop a next-generation grid side inverter with advanced control and novel operational mode capabilities, which will improve the grid interconnection of PV systems and will enable the large-scale deployment of PV systems with great benefits for all the stakeholders.
