Voltage Control Using Inverter Reactive Power Control

This is the fifth of five articles in the series “Reactive Power in Utility-Scale Solar PV Applications.”

In the previous four posts in this series, we discussed what reactive power is and where it comes from, its impact on T&D systems, and inverter-based resources’ capabilities for reactive power injection and absorption.

As mentioned in Blog #2 of […]

What makes construction challenging?

Working in construction can be very challenging. Why is this? HeatSpring instructor Amy Powell asks her teammates, colleagues, and trade partners to dive deep to get to the bottom of this question. 

She found that the majority of the challenges and experiences communicated ultimately boiled down to two things – communication and people. 

Skilled labor shortages. 

Onboarding. 

Motivating others. 

Initiating […]

Active Power Priority vs. Reactive Power Priority

This is the fourth of five articles in the series “Reactive Power in Utility-Scale Solar PV Applications.” Here’s the last article – “Inverter-Based Resources Reactive Power Capabilities” – in case you need to catch up.

In the earlier articles in this series, we’ve looked at the purpose of reactive power, power ratings of utility-scale solar inverters, and how […]

Inverter-Based Resources Reactive Power Capabilities

This is the third of five articles in the series “Reactive Power in Utility-Scale Solar PV Applications.” Here’s the last article – “Reactive Power and Transmission & Distribution Operations” – in case you need to catch up.

Inverters are a key component of any Inverter-Based Resources (IBR) facility, including utility-scale solar PV.  Because of their ability […]
