    Abstract: Photovoltaic (PV) panels have attracted a lot of research interest in the past decade due to their clean and renewable character as an energy source. However, their intrinsic low conversion efficiency has been a major drawback, imposing the need for a huge initial cost of investment. Additionally, due to the low efficiency, PV system installations ... Show More

    Abstract: Renewable Distributed Generation (RDG) is a promising alternative to conventional power generation methods because it reduces power losses and dependence on central power generation. However, when DG is deployed, it doesn’t always provide the reactive power needed for proper voltage regulation leading to low voltage on some buses. To achieve the ma... Show More
