4 2. Photovoltaic power generation system (2) Classification of Photovoltaic Energy System1) Grid-connected System- The output of solar system is connected to main grid.- The shortage power is supplied from grid, the surplus power is re-supplied to grid.- Used for House, Building, Grid Reinforcement, Power Generation (MW Level)2) Stand-alone System- Isolated from grid, Used to small capacity load in rural area without grid.- The power storage device (ex. the battery) is necessary when the generation is impossible.3) Hybrid System- System which is combined with other generation system such as wind turbine generator,diesel generator etc.- Used in the island, isolated area, military equipment without commercial power

6 3. Photovoltaic Inverter technology (1) Considerable feature for photovoltaic inverter1) Change of the environmental condition- Solar radiation, Surface temperature of PV array, Shadow by obstacle or cloud→ Environmental condition is changed frequently and rapidly.2) Response for the environmental change- Tracking for most efficient point of PV array: Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)3) Synchronized operation with grid- Synchronized operation with grid voltage4) Protective function- Inverter protection from grid fault condition- Grid protection from the fault condition of a solar energy system

8 3. Photovoltaic Inverter technology (3) Requirements for Photovoltaic Inverter1) DC input voltage range- Wide range of input voltage → Various kind of serial connection for solar module(250Vdc ~ 850Vdc)- 200Wp Solar module(6 inch Cell : 54 ea) → DC Voltage 26Vdc∼ 27VdcSerial & parallel connection of module → Advanced capacity, voltage- 3kW PCS input voltage range : 250Vdc ~ 600Vdc200W × 15ea serial connection → very useful to household system2) Cooling Method & Protection Degree- 3kW PCS : Natural cooling (without Fan) → No Noise- When PCS is independently established to outdoor, it is necessary to have high protection degreefor the dust and water. (3kW PCS : IP54)3) Detecting for DC current input- DC current input with the AC grid output can lead to the abnormal condition or damage to PCS.- Within 1%, detecting time : within 0.5 sec
9 3. Photovoltaic Inverter technology 4) Protection for grid abnormal connection- PCS protection for the abnormal or breakdown condition to minimize the range of accident.- Detecting for Over voltage, Under voltage, Over frequency, Low frequency5) Noise reduction- very important to indoor type- Switching frequency → over audio frequency- Without fan → No Noise- Air Cooling : Fan speed control according to the load6) European Efficiency- Considering for the operation from low load condition to full load condition- Efficiency with 5%, 10%, 20%, 30%, 50%, 100% load condition.→ Total power efficiency is produced.- European Efficiencyηeuro = 0.03 x ηeuro5%Pn x ηeuro10%Pn x ηeuro20%Pn x ηeuro30%Pnx ηeuro50%Pn x ηeuro100%Pn
10 3. Photovoltaic Inverter technology 7) MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) control- Because the output characteristic of PV array changes according to solar radiation and surfacetemperature, maximum output power point changes. (solar radiation increases → output powerincreases, temperature increases → output power decreases)- Watching and following function to operate at Maximum power point.- Algorithm : Perturbation and Observation (P&O), Incremental Conductance (IncCond)◈ Change of the solar module output characteristic (Temperature and solar radiation quantity)
11 3. Photovoltaic Inverter technology 8) Anti-Islanding Function- Islanding Operation : PCS continue to operate under power failure or grid accident.- Safety Problem : Electric Shock- It is important to synchronize between grid and PCS voltage.- When the power failure or grid accident is occurred, PCS must detect the fault conditionand stop its operation.- Detecting for islanding operation : Passive & Active Methoda) Passive Method▪ Detecting from grid parameter value (Voltage, Frequency)▪ Power mismatch → voltage & frequency variation → Islanding conditionb) Active Method▪ Detecting from response characteristic for the intended grid fluctuation.▪ PCS output voltage fluctuation, frequency transfer, reactive power addition, etc▪ Very useful method but very complex▪ Unstable : Non-detection zone
12 3. Photovoltaic Inverter technology 9) Standby power- Minimum standby power → Higher efficiency10) Weight- Size & Weight is very important. (Small size & Light weight)11) Communication & Monitoring system- Instantaneous power and accumulated power, Monitoring system for watchingwhether the system operates correctly.- Communication condition for using a PC (Personal Computer) network.
