Anti-Islanding •  Line monitoring –  Voltage limits, frequency limits. –  Rate of change of frequency –  Rapid phase shift •  Active detection –  Impedance measurement –  Forced phase shift/frequency shift Inverters Summary •  Convert a DC Voltage to an AC Voltage •  AC is just slowly changing DC •  Use a full-bridge to generate a PWM Sine Wave –  Pulse width proportional to sin(x) •  LC Filter to reject high frequencies Questions? In Upcoming Lectures •  Batteries •  Experimental Technique •  Guest Lectures from Tesla and Enphase...
