    Photovoltaic for self-consumption Solar energy production is booming worldwide. Many companies seek to incorporate photovoltaic (PV) systems for self-consumption – consuming energy produced while it is being produced – in their business model. To design the right PV system, consulting engineers and specifiers need to understand how to size the system, determine what equipment is required, how to integrate the PV and electrical distribution systems, including how customers want to operate the PV system, and more. Read our new chapter for details from our experts, including typical architectures and state-of-the-art sizing guidelines.

    Enhanced content on RCDs, AFDDs, measurement Protection against electric shocks according to IEC60364 requires proper selection of basic protection, fault protection and additional protection measures, proper implementation according to the electrical installation earthing scheme (TT, TN or IT), selection and coordination of residual current devices (RCDs) types according to the loads’ characteristics and circuits. Protection against electrical fires may be ensured by different means, including advanced protection with Arc Fault Detection Devices (AFDDs).
