Solar Power Design with ATS for Utility


By Dave Rongey - Summary:

Solar Power Design with ATS for a Grid Tied System – An ATS or Automatic Transfer Switch may be incorporated into the solar power design. The design must be such that it will keep the two systems separate in order to avoid damage from the electric utility company Line Voltage System.

Solar Power Design with ATS for a Grid Tied System

Electrical Question: Sir we have a project study and the problem is regarding to solar power we already gathered data and we found out that the max load of the building we are planing to set up a solar panel is 60 ampere. Now we are going to use an ATS so that in case of the absence of the sun we can automatically tap the line to the secondary source which is coming from an electric cooperative. Sir is this idea possible. Can a solar power without battery be incorporated with an ATS

This solar power question came from: Jerome, a Student from Solano, Philippines.

Additional Comments: This website is very helpful to us electrical students here in the Philippines.

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your solar power question Jerome.

Solar Power Design with ATS for a Grid Tied System

An ATS or Automatic Transfer Switch may be incorporated into the solar power design. The design must be such that it will keep the two systems separate in order to avoid damage from the electric utility company Line Voltage System. This requires isolation between the two systems which is accomplished by paying special attention to the electrical codes. The new NEC codes have several articles which address the topic of keeping the two electrical systems isolated.
