Abstract

Distributed generation systems interconnected to a power system are required so as to recover their output power immediately after the voltage sag caused by a fault in the power system. The purpose of this work is to develop a control strategy of for a photovoltaic inverter so as to maintain the output current during the voltage sag and recover the output power rapidly after the voltage sag. The proposed over current control logic, which is a simpler approach, is described for controlling the photovoltaic inverter. It was found that the recovery characteristics of active power are improved. It takes only 34 ms after the voltage sag to recover up to 90% of the reference power.
