As more PV projects come online, more utilities (ie. NGRID, HECO, XCEL, PEPCO, BGE, Indianapolis, etc) are looking for methods to mitigate temporary overvoltage from PV inverters.  Yaskawa – Solectria Solar is an expert on this topic due to the effects it has on inverters. During this training, the following will be discussed:

• Why effective grounding is required

• Meeting IEEE 142 requirements with grounding transformers/reactors

• A tool to calculate impedances of grounding devices
