In this emerging world, there is a great demand in electricity and the usages have been increasing day by day due to the accomplishment of the electrical instruments. Hence the development of sustainable resources such as solar, wind, tidal, biomass etc. has been seriously concerning all over the world. The technical progression in the field of power electronics directed to the practice of using solar power for their working. The output of the solar power shows discrepancy to the climate changes and some other veiling circumstances. Due to growing impacts of the high penetration of Photo voltaic systems (PVS), the utility grid module is essential for the effects on the power quality. This paper proposes the operative session of the grid module secluded with the PVS. The atmospheric conditions such as irradiation, high temperature, moisture, mist and fog are also considered for the better performance. For the process stabilization of the power supply to the grid module from the photovoltaic source, we use Electric Vehicle, as energy storage device. The electric vehicle requires a coordination of control to achieve preferred result. The demonstration of the above proposed system is carried out in Power system CAD and the consequences are verified through simulation results by considering real field data such as atmospheric conditions.
