The photovoltaic applications are no longer limited to their use in remote sites. The current trend, particularly in industrialized countries is connected to the power grid individual installations, especially collective facilities and projects in the courtyard of this century will surely change our energy consumption habits. As part of this work we considered the use of mini photovoltaic plants connected to the low voltage grid as a means of compensation, generating electricity at the point of deficit. For this we analyzed the behavior of a MV / LV, which has voltage drops in two starts and tried to connect at the end of each starting of a photovoltaic mini plant in order to bring the network technical parameters (power voltage) in permissible limits.
