Grounding and fault protection of the SMUD PVI arrayIf large terrestrial photovoltaic (PV) power plants are to provide an economic source of generation, low-cost, reliable and easily maintainable systems must be developed. In addition, if the system is to be a central station powerplant owned and operated by an electric utility, the design must also be consistent with utility specifications and design standards. The particular solutions developed to address these issues, with regard to grounding and fault protection, for the first phase of the Sacramento Municipal Utility District's (SMUD) 100 mw(ac) PV powerplant are presented. This plant, known as PV1, is nominally rated at 1 mw(ac) and is scheduled to be in operation by the spring of 1984.
