Abstract: This paper investigates how number and location of solar installations may reduce aggregate irradiance variability and therefore lessen the overall impact of PV on grid distribution. The current distribution of UK solar farms is analysed. It was found that variability is linked to site clustering and nearness to coast. The UK solar farm fleet currently comprises a range of system sizes which, when viewed in en masse, reduces variation in PV generation.
