 Abstract

This paper describes the Utility Interactive PV (UIPV) system which can improve the peak-cut effect by adding an energy storage device of batteries to the power converter. The proposed system has three possible operation modes depending on relative condition of PV output, which can have the power shaping function covering the peak power for 3 hours. A new power circuit and an application algorithm have been applied to the UIPV system which is based on working PV system during a 3-hour peak time. The energy relationship by the proposed system is analyzed theoretically and experimentally. The proposed system is evaluated at the viewpoint of cost and total spacing, which enables the proposed UIPV system to have the reduction of the peak power demand and hence to improve the power capacity of peak cut.
