Grid connection of photovoltaic systems

Technical Report:

Abstract

In many western European countries and in the USA there are examples of photovoltaic (PV) systems, often constructed as part of demonstration projects with support from government or electricity utilities. These systems provide power for the building and export surplus power to the electricity grid. Since 1991 the Energy Technology Support Unit, acting on behalf of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), has developed a programme to review the prospects for this technology in the UK. This study is part of the DTI programme and is concerned with the technical, economic and institutional issues of grid connection. The study reviews the regulations, standards and codes, metering requirements, attitudes of the electrical supply industry and overseas experience. The report identifies the requirements for technical and institutional development necessary to open up the potential market. It is accompanied by draft technical guidelines for system designers, installers and owners. (author)
