Standard for Interconnection of Embedded Generation (Eskom)
This standard sets out the minimum technical and regulatory requirements for the connection of Embedded Generators (EG) to Eskom‘s EHV, HV and MV electrical networks. This standard therefore is inclusive of Eskom Distribution‘s protection requirement guide.
NRS097-2-1: 2017 Grid Interconnection of Embedded Generation – Utility Interface
NRS 097-2-1 aims to be technology-neutral and focuses on the interface between the embedded generator and the utility, although it is expected that the specification will mainly apply to photovoltaic grid connected systems interfaced through static power converter technology.
NRS 049:2016 Advanced Metering Infrastructure Requirement for Smart Metering System
NRS 049 covers the entire smart metering system from the enterprise level down to the end device.
Grid Connection Code for Renewable Power Plants Connected to the electricity transmission system or the distribution system in South Africa
The grid connection code is to specify minimum technical and design grid connection requirements for Renewable Power Plants (RPPs) connected to or seeking connection to the South African electricity transmission system (TS) or distribution system (DS).
NRS 097-2-3:2014 Simplified Connection Criteria for LV Connected generators
NRS 097-2-3 provides criteria to be applied when applications for LV connected embedded generators are being assessed. If generators fall within these criteria, they can be approved without doing grid impact studies.
NRS 057:2005 South African National Standard Code of practice for electricity metering
This code of practice specifies the procedures and standards to be adhered to by electricity licensees and their agents in operating and servicing new and existing metering installations.
