Guidelines on the grid connection of photovoltaic systems

Technical Report:

Abstract

Privately owned, solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity generators may be used to provide electricity at the same voltage as the local electricity grid and to connect into it. In this mode the PV generator provides power for the owner when there is sufficient solar power available. The owner`s electrical loads are also connected to the electricity grid so that the grid provides power when the PV output is inadequate for the load and surplus PV power may be output to the grid. These guidelines are intended for use by potential owners or promoters of solar photovoltaic systems, by component and system designers, by installers, and by planning engineers in the regional electricity companies. The main subject of the guidelines is the actual power conditioning and connection to the grid. Some advice is offered on related aspects of system design, installation and operation. (author)
