Philip Kao speaks at UNSW SPREE


Australia has reached 21% of renewable energy penetration in average national wide. The cumulative installed large scale PV system by the end of 2018 reached more than 1.8 GW. More than 60 PV plants were delivered and started to generate power into the transmission line. This talk will discuss large scale solar inverter features on the DC safety, earthing protection, step up medium voltage power transformer, medium voltage switchgear, plant SCADA and inverter power quality output control topology based on experience gained in SMA during the last two years.
