Smart grid is among the most important & ambitious endeavors of our time & smart grid vision demands the integration of different renewable energy (RE) sources in one component. Challenges in the integration are obvious as RE sources are highly variable with respect to many electrical parameters. The smart grid must absorb the variability of these sources through critical technological solutions. The survey reported in this paper deals with the opportunities & the challenges posed by one such major RE source i.e. solar energy in the whole integration process to ensure bidirectional power flow, safety, security & reliability in order to attain the future grid objectives. © Research India Publications.
