Solar Photovoltaic Power Systems Installation, construction, maintenance and sizing of the arrays per NEC Article 690


Join us for our IEEE Tech Talk on the NEC Article 690 Photovoltaic Power Systems on Tuesday January 25, 2022 at 7 pm PST.  Find out important construction and safety issues concerning the installation and operation of Photovoltaic (Solar Arrays). There are also civil, architectural and security issues to consider, which may require more than just installing locks.  We also discuss Solar Photovoltaic Power Systems IEEE 1562-2021 Recommended Practice for Sizing Stand-Alone Photovoltaic (PV) Systems.

Recent (2019 and 2021, respectively) updates to IEEE 1013 and IEEE 1562 (from their 2007 editions) for sizing standalone PV panels, charge controllers, and batteries.  In the past 15 years, not only have solar panels come way down in price, enabling even more people to economically be off-grid, but charge controller technologies have greatly improved, and solar panel efficiencies have improved as well.  Li-ion batteries have also entered the market, as they have many more cycles than past lead-acid and Ni-Cd equivalents, and their price has dropped significantly, while their relatively poor safety record is improving.  While IEEE 1013 is specifically focused on lead-acid technologies, its principles are easily applied to other battery technologies.  The Q&A portion of this webinar will discuss grid-connected solar and batteries, as well as Fuel Cells.

Biography:

Curtis Ashton is employed by American Power Systems (a DC power service subsidiary of EastPenn/Deka battery manufacturing) as their Training Director.  He is the immediate past chair of the IEEE PES (Power and Energy Society) ESSB (Energy Storage and Stationary Battery) standards committee, responsible for 38 IEEE standards / working groups related to batteries.  Mr. Ashton is also the working group chair, vice-chair, secretary, or technical editor of several of those document working groups.  He has published papers and presented around the world on battery, power, grounding, and related technologies.  Curtis is also a member of the NFPA 855 committee which is primarily driving the Fire Code safety measures around battery storage.  He has other standards and conference experience as a past vice-president of IEEE PELS TC7 (Intelec), past vice-president of ATIS-STEP, and present chair of the technical committee and MC of the Battcon annual stationary battery conference.  Mr. Ashton is an Electrical Engineer (BSEE from ASU) and is a Master Electrician in the state of Colorado.  In his spare time, he enjoys practicing his Spanish fluency, and refereeing high school basketball and soccer games.
