Technical Papers

PDF Icon Solar Power Integration and the Pros and Cons of Building-Integrated PV (BIPV) New! 2017

PDF Icon Overview of “Power Electronics for Grid Connection of Utility-Scale Battery Energy Storage Systems” New! 2017

PDF Icon A Comparative Review of APTView SCADA System Versus Competitors to be Integrated into Micro Grids for Remote Monitoring of Traditional and Renewable Energy Sources New! 2017

PDF Icon Standard Electrical Power System Device Function Numbers (from ANSI C37.2).

PDF Icon Listing of most common types of currently available automatic transfer switching devices, description of their operation and overview of their suitability for various applications.

PDF Icon Overview of the issues related to the operation of the Distributed Generation (DG) in parallel with the grid and transition of the DG to and from the grid connected operation.

PDF Icon Overview of the “Standard for Interconnecting Distributed Resources with Electric Power Systems”, IEEE 1547 and it’s potential impact on operation of the Distributed Generation (DG) systems and on the design of the switchgear intended for the transition of the distributed generation resources (DR) to and from grid connected operation.

PDF Icon Recommendations on optimized design of the Interconnection Switchgear for the power systems with Distributed Generators (DG).

PDF Icon Short circuit interrupting ratings of the Low Voltage Generator Circuit Breakers. X/R ratio of a typical low voltage generator above 500kVA often exceeds the test X/R ratio of low voltage circuit breakers. Concise background of the importance of considering X/R ratio is presented along with hard to find derating data in table format, which should allow engineers to easily calculate derated value of circuit breaker based on system X/R ratio for any application.
