Sharply increased penetration of solar generation is starting to have wide ramifications in some electrical distribution systems, putting stress on devices traditionally used to handle voltage variability. To address the impacts of intermittent generation effectively, the hitherto largely separate disciplines of power electronics and power system automation need to be integrated.
