The paper aims at providing the analysis of domestic energy generation and consumption within residential areas. The topic of this study is twofold: theoretical and experimental by addressing aspects related to the operation of a microgrid connected to the low-voltage distribution grid. In order to achieve the power quality analysis for various scenarios, an appropriate testing stand was developed by using the Chauvin Arnoux CA 8435 analyser. There is envisaged the modelling and design of a mixed microgrid characterized by two line sections established by three main energy consumption nodes. There have been integrated several connection points related to the distributed generation sources and to the photovoltaic power plants, respectively, and also several supply points for the household end-users. 13 operation scenarios have been developed and recorded by analysing the voltage variation within the microgrid. Furthermore, the paper envisages the stabilization impact of the microgrid voltage variation in the presence of distributed generation sources.
