Testing and Commissioning a Distribution Recloser in Grid-Tie Solar Farms

Mohit Sharma and Luis Montoya Features, Winter 2020 Features

Rapid photovoltaic (PV) penetration into the electric grid has mandated deeper operational and technical understanding of protection schemes in PV farms. An effective protection scheme ensures a grid-connected system functions reliably and securely, and testing and commissioning the entire protection scheme to prove its operational success is of paramount importance. This article presents a standard grid-tie photovoltaic farm architecture and …
