PV interconnection studies help utilities deal with the growth of solar generation

Photovoltaic (PV) solar systems are one of the fastest-growing energy sources being integrated into the utility distribution system. According to Clean Technica, solar energy capacity in the United States grew 418 percent from 2010-2014. This is in part because states that have Renewable Portfolio Standards (mandatory) or Goals (voluntary), are seeing a large increase of solar…

EDD to perform PV interconnection study on Silicon Valley Power’s entire electrical system

Electrical Distribution Design, Inc. is implementing a three-phase dynamic simulation of Silicon Valley Power’s entire transmission and distribution system, using the simulation to study the effects of high penetration distribution-level solar generation on transmission system generation dynamics. EDD built Silicon Valley Power’s model to enable a three-phase analysis, though for the past 40 years electrical systems have been…
