Facility Connection RequirementsMay 1, 2005
III. H. Reactive Power Control
Entities interconnecting their transmission system with FPL-NED's transmission system shall comply with applicable ISO-NE policies, rules, procedures and standards, and the ISO-NE Tariff.
III. I. Unbalance Phases
Unbalance currents and voltage are to be controlled by each party on their respective side of the interconnection. However, it should be realized that switching devices, such as breakers and switches, are three phase devices and can fail with only one or two poles closed. It is the responsibility of the facility owner to protect their own equipment such as generators or transformers from damaging negative sequence currents or voltage.
III. J. End-User (Delivery Point) Power Factor
Delivery point connections to the FPL-NED transmission system shall meet the power factor requirements set forth in FPL-NED’s Schedule 21 of the ISO-NE Open Access Transmission Tariff, and shall be in conformance with all applicable provisions of ISO-NE OP-12 (Voltage and Reactive Requirements).
III. K. End-User (Delivery Point) Power Quality
Generation of harmonics should be limited to values prescribed by IEEE Standard 519 when measured at the interconnection point of ownership. Additionally, the FPL-NED transmission system should not be subjected to harmonic currents in excess of 5% of a transformer’s rated current as stated in ANSI/IEEE Standard C57.12.00.
III. L. End-User (Delivery Point) Metering
Unless mutually agreed otherwise, FPL-NED is to own, operate and maintain the metering installation equipment, including the instrument transformers, secondary conductors, cables, meters and transducers. If the interconnection facilities are owned by the end-user, and that party does not own the instrument transformers or meters, then a structure and a location for mounting metering transformers and recording devices are to be provided by the facility owner. End-user devices are not to be connected directly to potential or current transformer secondaries used for revenue metering.
III. M. End-User (Delivery Point) Auto-Restoration
