Advanced SCADA – Extending the Function of the Solar Plant SCADA System

Introduction All monitoring and SCADA systems provide basic device information to allow detection of offline and malfunctioning equipment. This includes data from: Meters, Inverters, Weather Stations, Trackers, Strings, and Substation Equipment. At a basic level, these systems provide actionable information to determine if equipment at a solar power plant is performing as expected. The analysis […]

Scheduling Coordinator Metered Entity

Participating in the CAISO Market Resources that participate in the CAISO market, be they generation or load, establish their metering requirements as being either a CAISO Metered Entity (CAISO ME) or a Scheduling Coordinator Metered Entity (SCME). Until recently, the majority of the SCMEs have been resources representing load, both bundled and direct access customers. […]

Equitable Cost Distribution for Losses on a Shared Transmission Line

Introduction The rapid development of renewable energy sources has created complications for the substations and transmission lines that deliver the energy to the end users. Grid owners and operators are working feverishly to enable the interconnections that are being requested. One concerns of those multiple interconnections is the proper accounting of losses on the shared […]

Energy Storage Resources: A Year in Review

From both a regulatory and development perspective, 2018 was a significant year for the expansion of energy storage resources (ESRs). From a significant ruling of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), to the presentation and implementation of aggressive state initiatives, rapid ESR deployment continues unabated while ESR technology costs continue to decline precipitously… See full […]

Smart Tracking Technology Ushers in New Era of Increased Energy Harvest on Large-Scale Sites

Tracking systems are already innovative. They track the sun rather than keeping solar panels in a fixed position. Many single-axis trackers claim at least a 25% performance gain over fixed-tilt systems, and developers still think there is room for improvement. A number of brands are exploring ways to improve backtracking (adjusting panel orientation to limit […]

How to Add Storage to an Existing Solar Array

Adding storage to an existing solar array is not always an easy, plug-and-play process. It could be if the solar array was installed storage-ready, but with the rapid advancements of solar-plus-storage in the last few years, it’s unlikely many legacy solar systems can easily adapt to battery connection. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible; there […]
