Abstract: The integration of distributed generations (DG’s) to the grid has led to number of challenges apart from the advantages, one of the challenge associated is the voltage regulation. Photovoltaic (PV) system as a DG is considered as it has a better edge when compared to the other DG’s. The application of PV system to the grid requires extra compensating devices to mitigate the voltage regulation issues. A novel voltage regulation strategy for three phase grid connected PV system using fractional order proportional plus integral (FOPI) controller is proposed in this paper. The modelling&analysis of FOPI controller along with the integer orderproportional plus integral (IOPI) controlleris presented in this paper. FOPI controllers are designed in Matlab using FOMCON toolbox (Fractional order Modeling and Control).The simulation is consequently carried out in the Matlab/Simulink environment for both the controllers with resistive loads, resistive & inductive loadsand resistive, inductive & capacitive loads.The FOPI controller outperforms IOPI controller, results of simulation reflectthat controller using FOPI gives better performancewhen compared with the IOPI controller. The effectiveness ofthe FOPI controller confirms the authentication and the simulation results are deliberated for all the different loads.
