Connecting Solar to the Grid

Does Your Site Need Inrush Control?

As more renewable energy installations are added to the grid, utilities are increasingly setting limits on the level of voltage sags and rapid voltage change (RVC) events as part of their interconnection requirements. To minimize these phenomenons, inrush currents must be minimized during connection of the solar farm to the grid. Modeling this can be very expensive and time-consuming, however, a simplified quick estimate has been developed to assess the need for inrush mitigation. While this estimate does not take the place of a complete system study, it will provide guidance that can lead to a cost effective solution if the requirement for inrush mitigation is confirmed.
