Analysis of Grid Connected Solar Farm in ETAP Software

Authors(2) :-Komal B. Patil, Prof. R. S. Ambekar

In today’s day to day life the energy requirement growth will increasing rapidly. The use of renewable energy is important to provide rapid increased energy demand. Solar energy provides free energy from sun which is pollution free, clean and maintenance free energy. This paper aims to analyse the performance analysis of grid connected solar farm. This analysis consists of load flow analysis, active power flow at different irradiance, reactive power analysis and short circuit analysis on impact of 1-? and 3-?. To accomplish this proposed system modelling is done in ETAP (Electrical Transient Analyzer Program) software.
