Abstract: As solar inverters have the ability to inject reactive power along with the active power, a reactive power control methodology to inject and control the reactive power flow into the grid is presented in this paper. A detailed modelling about the components used in this technique is mentioned in the below sections. This paper also discusses about the reactive power capability curve in relation with the inverter current carrying capability and constant reactive power injection method. The system is simulated using the MATLAB/SIMULINK software for constant reactive power injection method and results are presented.
