Description

The Lanai electric grid has one of the highest penetration
rates of PV generation in the world.
– Lanai peak load = 4.7 MWAC
– La Ola Solar Farm generation capacity = 1.2 MWAC
• Interconnection requirements currently limit PV output to
600 kW in order to prevent high ramp rates from cloud
transients.
• Sandia designed and installed an irradiance sensor network
(Lanai Irradiance Network Experiment: LINE) to characterize
spatial temporal irradiance patterns over the PV field.
