Distributed solar-PV generation has gained significant penetration level in electricity networks due to economic incentives provided to encourage renewable power generation. With the growth of the solar-PV generation, power utilities have encountered with various planning and operation issues. In particular, voltage control and stability are the two major issues faced by power utilities. These issues have arisen due to bidirectional power-flows in distribution feeders and replacement of the conventional synchronous generation with increased solar-PV generation. The aim of this chapter is to investigate these issues and propose various strategies to improve voltage control and stability of the electricity network.
