​Phase unbalance damages 3-phase motor loads and increases technical losses, causing real problems on equipment such as large commercial HVAC units. Argonne National Laboratory, in partnership with NRECA, is conducting a research project to develop control strategies for solar PV inverters that mitigate power quality issues related to phase unbalance. NRECA is looking for cooperatives to serve as technical advisors on the development and testing of related software.

The following advisory provides full details on benefits and responsibilities of participation.
