    Abstract

    This report investigates the design, construction and testing of a lockable box that is part of the grid-connected PV system. This system is intended to be installed by the School of Engineering and Energy at the Murdoch University South street campus and this system will be placed at the (Out Door Test Area) of the Research Institute for Sustainable Energy (RISE). The main purpose of this system is to create a good sample of the grid-connected system for the students of the Renewable Engineering degree. This system will allow the students to perform their experiment on the system in a safe environment. This system specifically has been designed and built to perform the islanding test.

    The report begins by providing an overview of the system's background and explains the specific tasks and objectives of the project. Then it provides descriptions, design of wirings and mechanicals of each individual component. Especially, it investigates the Hall Effect technology in detail. The rest of the report describes the design and procedures for making the DC and AC Hall Effect boards. In addition, it describes the procedures, and necessary equipment for performing the test on the DC and AC Hall Effect boards.

    Through investigation it was found that the prototype system which was built by Benjamin Hug, did not comply with the Australian Standard (AS), because it was built prior to Australian Standard (2005). Therefore the new system must be completely redesigned to comply with the Australian Standard. In addition, this report investigates the theory behind the Hall Effect technology and current and voltage transducers as well as design and test of DC and AC Hall Effect boards.
