To achieve its renewable energy targets, Algeria has launched several projects, such as the Hassi Rmel solar thermal-gas hybrid power plant, the Taberkine wind farm in Adrar, and several small photovoltaic power plants. Besides, others planned including, the Naama PV plant. In this study, the impact of the expected photovoltaic power plant at the province of Naama on the southwestern network of Algeria. The obtained results indicate that the installation of this plant would have a positive impact on the system by reducing the losses active and improving the voltage profile.
