Winki's proven track record in commercial solar shows that we understand the intricacies of installing these systems. Ensuring seamless operation is paramount. 

What is Injection Testing?

One crucial aspect is injection testing, a critical process that verifies the proper functionality and safety of your solar system's protective relays.

In simpler terms, injection testing simulates abnormal grid conditions, such as voltage fluctuations or frequency deviations, by injecting specific electrical signals. These simulated scenarios test how effectively the protective relays in your system respond, ensuring they isolate the solar system from the grid in case of faults, safeguarding both your equipment and the wider electrical network.

Why is injection testing crucial?

Imagine a scenario where your protective relays malfunction during a grid anomaly. This could lead to:

  • Non-compliance: Failure to meet local regulations and grid connection requirements, potentially jeopardising your system's operation approval.
  • Infrastructure damage: Improper relay response could damage your own equipment or even the local grid infrastructure managed by the Distribution Network Service Provider (DNSP).
  • System shutdown: In the worst-case scenario, the DNSP might be forced to shut down your solar system to prevent further issues, significantly impacting your return on investment.

Meticulously conducted injection testing offers a multitude of benefits

  • Compliance: Ensures your system adheres to all necessary regulations and grid connection requirements.
  • Safety: Safeguards your equipment and the broader electrical infrastructure, minimising the risk of damage.
  • Operational continuity: Guarantees the smooth and uninterrupted operation of your solar system, maximising your energy production and financial returns.
