Design, Installation and Experimentation of a Photovoltaic Station Connected to the Electricity Grid on the Campus of the University of Oujda (Morocco)

This chapter’s goal is to analyse and size a photovoltaic (PV) project connected to the electrical grid in order to lower the campus university’s electricity costs in the technopole of Oujda (Morocco). We demonstrate the size calculation (using the PVsyst software) and functionality of a 10 kW solar station connected to the electrical grid to power the three-phase loads.

According to experimental findings from field tests, the 10 kWp installation linked to the network (50 Hz, 230 V, 16 A) primarily provides the three-phase loads before injecting any excess energy into the electrical grid.

The average voltages recorded on the phases (T, S, and R) are in the range of 238V, the currents measured on the phases (T, R, and S) range from 7 to 14 A, and the output voltages linked to the phases (SR, ST, and TR) are in the neighbourhood of 418V. All of the measurements made match the two installations’ specs and simulations on the PVsyst programme in very good detail. The campus of the university in Oujda is totally run by sustainable photovoltaic electricity. Currently, we monitor the generation, use, and injection of electrical energy as well as the price of the electricity bill.
