As Denmark has a goal to produce all its energy from renewable sources by 2050 therefore they will increase rapidly in the future energy systems. Also in Denmark solar energy is one of the rapidly growing technology of renewable energy. Therefore in the coming years there will be a high penetration level of PV in the system. But this will come with a challenge of power variation and to maintain voltage within limits. So in this project the estimation of maximum amount of PV integration in the system without voltage limits violation, as well as the control of the voltage rise due to high levels of PV is done. The project concludes that if reactive power is provided through PVs it can reduce the voltage rise and meanwhile increase the level of PV integration and hence contribute to the future energy
goals.
