Green is probably what’s growing in there, that’s the only kind of warehouse that could produce enough profit to do that! LOL! With California’s rolling blackouts, loss of crop could justify it. LOL!Yes, exactly. I'm wondering if this is "supposed" to be Green?
If that's not the reason, then why?
Cabin in WA with microhydro, About 4 kHz 3 phase generator for best use of hydro with flow and head I have.
Cabin 800 feet from generator.
all custom one of a kind dc-dc converters to get 400 Vdc to cabin and then and more custom dc-dc converters for lighting and other cutom loads (e.g bypass rect stage in electronic and go straight to internal dc bus, etc) - a few small (50 W) off the shelf dc-ac for small 60 Hz loads not worth bothering with customizing.
selected 400 V as best fit for buying FETS with ratings sufficient to last for 100,000 hours, all ferrite transformers, etc.
nothing simple about any of it.
Back in 1979, even with the cost and state of solar at that time, for the MX racetrack basing scheme solar was a toss up in life cycle cost with building a new power plant and installing the distribution system (4600 sites running 24/7 at 30 kW) in southern Nevada and Utah. Biggest solar advantage was that over the 1950 to 1978 time frame, the longest stretch of continuous overcast was 3 days.
If it was me, that is what I would do as well. I would get rid of most (if not all) of the transfer switches and handle my redundancy at the generator level. You could also build in some battery UPS or large flywheels to minimize potential switching transients.I'd also consider paralleling generators.
Lots of things to consider here that are maybe even more important than the one-line.
You don't want the typical standby generators, they should be continuous duty. Maintaining the generators while they are running is another consideration (can filters be changed without shutting the generator off?)
What about transfers? They probably aren't going to be very happy if there is a short blackout on every transfer.
