The authors have investigated to optimize arrangement and operation of PV generation system to serve as an essential part of regional smart grids. The PV generation is expected mostly to bring about the reduction of CO 2 emission all over the world in order to solve problems of global warming and exhaustion of fossil fuel. However, The PV power output decreases due to the change of solar radiation and the influence of shadow. Therefore, the authors have analyzed the optimal install parameters such as direction and tilt angle of PV panels considering the influence of shadow. The authors have aimed at optimizing operation of PV generation for building smart grids in Japan.
