In collaboration with H.B. White Canada Corp., CIMA+ developed a 100 MWAC photovoltaic project located near Kingston, Ontario. The facility has six non-contiguous zones with over 464,000 DC photovoltaic panels connected to 125 inverters, and 66 step-up transformers connected to the medium voltage collector. The latter operates at 34.5 kV from the inverter stations to the zone switchgear, with each zone connected to the substation via joint use poles. The substation consists of a protection and control building with switchgear, step-up transformer, neutral grounding reactor, dynamic compensation equipment and 230 kV interconnection equipment.
Canada’s largest solar farm generates 100 MW of renewable energy, enough to power 17,000 households.
