Renewable energy connection at distribution voltage levels is becoming widespread throughout the Australian electricity distribution grid. These distributed assets often have nameplate generation capacities of 5MW, and bring a set of cost optimisation challenges for protection and control.

In this presentation, we cover the switchgear, protection and controls which have been used to connect these generation assets to the distribution grid.

Case studies include the Kanowna Solar Farm and installations around Dubbo NSW, where the preference for SF6-free switchgear resulted in solid dielectric insulated switchgear selection.
