UNDP DREG Best-practices Guidelines and Lessons Learnt for On-grid and PV-diesel Hybrid Systems Guideline Report
“The Best-practices Guidelines and Lessons Learnt for On-grid and PV-diesel Hybrid Systems Guideline Report aims at establishing a common and general procedure to ensure safe and technically-sound implementation of PV plants and it is mainly directed at engineers and individuals knowledgeable in the field of photovoltaics. Due to Lebanon’s PV market’s foreseen development characteristics, the guideline focuses on PV plants that are interconnected to a client’s electrical distribution grid. In most cases, these will be rooftop PV plants, but most of the procedures and protection measures suggested also apply to ground-mounted PV plants.
The topics covered in this guideline are mainly related to safety, protection, technical optimization, and design compliance to international standards and best-practices.
The issues discussed in this document are commonly encountered during the design and installation phases of a PV system, and so the purpose of this guideline is to dissect these issues and showcase all the technical details behind them for a better understanding of the best-practices and the dangers and drawbacks of not abiding by them.”
