New rules for interconnecting renewables

FERC 827 and the solutions to enable compliance

In a landmark ruling issued on June 16, 2016, FERC Order No. 827 now requires all newly interconnected non-synchronous generators such as wind farms “to be able to provide reactive power at the high-side of the generator substation as a condition of interconnection.” Prior to this ruling wind farms and other non-synchronous generators were exempt from the requirement to provide reactive power compensation, unless a need was identified through a system impact study.

This white paper addresses the significance of the FERC 827 ruling and the solutions available to help facilitate a seamless interconnection of wind and solar plants to the transmission network.
