Abstract [en]

Solar PV systems are being installed worldwide with accelerated rates; the need for comprehensive studies regarding the impacts on the conventional power distribution system and a clear roadmap on how much can our networks take without any upgrades or additional components need to be investigated and examined carefully, this thesis explored voltage profile and voltage level at the local feeders near the load and the PV system connection, the impact on the line losses and loading, power limits and the standard limits for power systems operation.  Main points and remarks were concluded to guide any operator desiring to encourage clients to implement PV systems. The passive limits injection of power from PV systems is defined as the hosting capacity of the electrical grid and it’s limited to the power production of the PV system and the load profile. Suggestions to enhance the hosting capacity of the grid were concluded and the limiting parameters were pointed. The weakness points of the grid are stated within the sections of this research.   Future recommendation is to include the quality of the power delivered taking into account the future load nature and impact into grid and load profile.
