ABOUT THIS EVENT
Due to the expansive growth of solar distributed generation, engineers must take proactive steps to adapt their legacy systems. The non-inductive load characteristic of solar inverters creates a new challenge which must translate into more robust system protection schemes. This paper will give real examples of distribution interconnected systems with lessons learned on best practices for protection system modeling and technological advancement.
Question: With the volume of distributed generation projects (specifically solar) coming online, have distribution utility engineers investigated the impact that these non-linear inverter sources will have on their existing system protection scheme? The basis and understanding, at a high level, of what engineers need to be mindful of, comes from the study which determines how they should be modeling these loads, and how they should be planning for upgrades to proactively prepare.
