Smart grids can be a good challenge for the near future if they are intelligently managed. Therefore, the exploitation of the energy resources distributed into a network is one of the most discussed themes in actual scientific literature, together with the attention paid to power quality (PQ) improvement. This paper aims to provide a possible solution to(More)
The increasing penetration of renewable sources with power-electronic interfaces in power systems is raising technical problems and the overall efficiency of photovoltaic systems can decrease dramatically. In this context, the optimal layout for the photovoltaic system is required. The most adequate strategy to connect the renewable system to the electrical(More)
The electricity access in Sub-Saharan African countries is below 10%; thus, introducing a microgrid for rural electrification can overcome the endemic lack of modern electricity access that hampers the provision of basic services such as education, healthcare, safety, economic and social growth for rural communities. This work studies different possible(More)
-The many new installation of generators, often based on renewable sources, in the distribution grids impacts the future development of modern electrical distribution systems that must to evolve towards Smart Grids. An important function required by the future smart grids is the possibility to maintain an intentional island using a suitable control of the(More)
Variable and non-programmable resources, such as solar and wind, have undergone a stunning growth in recent years and are likely to gain even more importance in the future. Their strong presence in the national electricity mix has created issues in many countries regarding the secure operation of the power system. In order to guarantee the stability of the(More)
