abstract
On the roof of an industrial site a 385 kWp PhotoVoltaic installation is operational. When production of this system reaches 60% of the installed power, the circuit breaker trips. At sufficient production, measurements show a high distortion of phase voltage and variable waveform of both phase voltage and current. Analysis of the installation showed that a Yy0 transformer is used introducing a high zero sequence impedance. Unbalance in the injected current combined with a high zero sequence impedance leads to a high neutral-ground voltage and distorted phase-neutral voltages. In this paper it will be shown that the tripping of the circuit breaker is caused by the measurement method of the device. This paper analyses the practical measurement results, causes of errors and the solution to the stated problem.
