THEORETICAL ANALYSIS OF GENERATION AND COMPENSATION OF REACTIVE POWER IN PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS


Abstract

The paper is focused on the theoretical analysis of potential options of reactive power origin and its compensation in photovoltaic power plants. In the first part of paper parts of photovoltaic power plants, which can be a source of inductive or capacitive reactive power are described. The second part describes a compensation of reactive power and reasons of requirement of reactive power compensation. Further we describe the basic types of the presently most frequently used reactive power compensation equipment in photovoltaic power.
