Lessons from SRP’s Advanced Inverter Project
Juan Cardona, Principal Engineer, SRP
Four years ago, SRP and EPRI embarked on a project to understand what level of communication and control is necessary to manage distribution voltage with high penetrations of solar, and what role should a distribution management system (DMS) play in controlling them. To accomplish this, SRP deployed 750 advanced inverters across the service territory evaluating different levels of control from a DMS. This presentation shares key findings from this project and how they have already influenced SRP.
