This work arises within the framework of the introduction of renewable energies at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AAS) and the focus is on the technical feasibility of a solar energy system (SES) on ground level. The flight safety must always be guaranteed if solar panels are implemented on AAS. The radiation reflection of solar panels according to the optical effect towards the pilot of an airplane and the line of sight of the Air traffic tower has been studied. Also the constraints for installing an "object" at the Airport have to be taken into account. This should lead to an overall impression of the potential of solar panels that can be orientated on ground level. A complete model of a solar energy system is designed: tilt angle, type of solar panels, equipment (DC/AC inverter), a cable system as well as the way the design can be implemented in the electricity infrastructure of AAS. Power Quality (PQ) and the effects of implementing a SES will be discussed: disturbances have to be minimized
