Solar power

Customer challenges in solar power systems

PV farms are intermittent and non-dispatchable sources of electricity and they can inherently suffer from weather variability, stability, and non-synchronous power generation. These are caused by factors like solar radiation only available during the daytime, various weather conditions, seasons, etc. For instance, high midday PV generation can lead to over-generation which may result in the curtailment of energy due to transmission constraints or possibilities of power system destabilization. In addition to these challenges, solar farms may also be a source of various power quality problems such as harmonic distortions.
