Solar Integration: Interconnections and Protective Relay Systems


Integration of solar projects into the grid requires project proponents to meet a variety of requirements. Some of these are common to all projects and some are specific to solar projects. This presentation will review the general requirement for interconnection and then focus on particular needs for solar projects. Special attention will be given to the protective relay system. We will review FERC Orders, NERC Standards, ISO/RTO and transmission provider requirements, IEEE and other Standards and utility practices.
