The grid is not all the time available and a daily scheduled program of electricity shortage is applied in some developing countries like Lebanon. In such situation renewable energy systems connected to the grid can't be an effective solution. Although net metering or feed forward connectivity is allowed, still the grid outage program prevents its use in an efficient way. For this reason, this research work suggests a new control algorithm for photovoltaic systems connected to a grid with scheduled outage. This solution provides to the consumer the maximum benefit of connectivity.
