Smart Grids have been one of the prime focuses of studies for the past few years on power systems. The goal is to make the power infrastructure more reliable and effective to cater for the needs of the future. Another goal for improving the power infrastructure is to incorporate renewable energy sources in an efficient and cost-effective manner. The popularity of solar PV has increased in recent times which has lead to exponential growth in the installed solar PV. This paper compares four possible scenarios for incorporating household solar PV systems into the power grid. It discusses the properties of each scenario along with their advantages and disadvantages. An effective system layout can be obtained by choosing the suitable case for incorporation of solar home systems according to the requirements.
