Power quality from multiple grid-connected single-phase inverters

Infield, D.G. and Onions, P. and Simmons, A.D. and Smith, G.A. (2004) Power quality from multiple grid-connected single-phase inverters. IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery, 19 (4). pp. 1983-1989. ISSN 0885-8977

Abstract

This paper reports on a study into the aggregate power quality from multiple grid connected inverters. Measurements are presented for individual single-phase inverters generating into the low voltage network under a range of operational conditions, and for groups of similar converters connected at the same point on the network. Some results from the modeling of multiple inverter interaction are also presented. Particular attention is given to power factor, the harmonic content of the generated currents, and dc injection.
