Reference project name
IEA PVPS Task 14

The IEA PVPS Task 14 Subtask C “PV in Smart Grids” will explore the communication and control for high penetration PV systems. The main intention is to survey the appropriate control strategies and communication technologies to integrate a high number of distributed PV systems into a smart electricity network. This Report summarizes the survey on the existing PV communication and control practice among Task 14 participating countries as well as reviews the literature of the state-of-the-art concepts for integration PV system under smart grid environment.
