Determine Primary Side of Transformer in Solar PV Applications

In the PV/Solar grid-tie applications the primary side of transformer is often incorrectly identified as the side connected to the solar inverter. In practice; the transformer will initially be energized from the side tied to the facility/utility grid.

The Progression of the Energy Industry in 2020

People have realized that they can take control of their energy in lots of other ways. With their smart devices and a little bit of planning, consumers can now make money on their energy use, while simultaneously keeping the grid stable.

EVs Only as Green as Their Grids

Though EVs are two to three times more efficient than conventional, gasoline-powered vehicles and have no tailpipe emissions, the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) reductions and air quality benefits they bring depend on the mix of energy generation sources on the grid used to charge them.
