Samson Solar Energy Center Grounding Study


Lamar County, TX

Project Description

The 500MWdc Samson Solar projects are part of a 910 MWdc Samson Solar energy Center. They have a total of (136) 4.2 MVA Solar inverter skids. Detailed grounding analysis and mitigation recommendations were needed.


PRE completed the extensive grounding analysis using CDEGS software, analyzing step and touch potential at inverter and transformer skids, power blocks, and site perimeter fence and gates. The complete results were provided to the client as a detailed report which included mitigation recommendations where results exceeded IEEE 80 standards to ensure that the entire site was safe for on-site personnel.
