Common Installation Errors and Consequences for PV Installations

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/342326

In this webinar we will discuss common installation errors and associated consequences on PV installations. We will cover several installation categories, such as wire management, inverters, Rapid Shutdown Devices (RSDs) and then take a deeper dive on a more common cause of rooftop solar fires: connectors. All of these components must last at least 25 years and if they’re not properly installed, they can lead to electrical failures and significant safety risks. We will discuss best practices to avoid these risks and share some helpful field management tools for effective construction, operations and maintenance.

Rethinking the Role of Financial Transmission Rights in Wind-Rich Electricity Markets in the Central U.S.

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/344414

Join the Berkeley Lab presenting their research: In the United States, most wind power capacity has been deployed in the wind-rich central region. Transmission congestion within this large region causes spatial variation in wholesale power prices—called the basis—that can unpredictably reduce wind plant revenue and, hence, possibly slow deployment. We use historical pricing and generation data from three central U.S. markets to show that wind plants are more-susceptible than thermal generators to congestion-related basis risk. Moreover, while most thermal generators can effectively hedge any basis risk by purchasing conventional financial transmission rights (FTRs), these fixed-volume FTRs are not a good match for variable wind generation. More-effective hedging mechanisms—for example, an FTR whose volume varies with wind plant output—may be required to support those generators most-impacted by congestion, and to promote continued investment in variable generation resources in congested markets.
