Abstract

Solar photovoltaic (PV) distributed generation (DG) systems are installed for residential, commercial, and industrial use. PV DG systems in the residential sector typically have capacities below 20 kilowatts (kW). However, commercial and industrial PV DG systems can have capacities of several hundred kW. While most PV DG systems are deployed on rooftops, they can also be ground-mounted if there is enough space to do so.
