Renewable Energy, Photovoltaic Systems Near Airfields: Electromagnetic Interference

Christopher Deline, Geoff Dann

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


Sources of electromagnetic interference from photovoltaic (PV) systems are investigated, with a particular focus on civilian and military airfields. Previous studies have identified no risk or very low risk from siting PV systems or inverters near airfield communications equipment, given a reasonable setback (250-500'). The same recommendation is provided by this summary report.
