This project aims to

study rooftop photovoltaic (PV) system integration effects on Tunisian electrical distribution network (EDN).

The solar photovoltaic energy has been promoted for residential (policies subsidies for encouragement, special pricing, etc.) since several years, in Tunisia,

where electrical energy consumption in residential sector is important: more than 30% of the total electrical energy consumption.
