Due to environmental and also customer-specific, economic or supply security requirements, there are increasing shares of power generation from distributed energy resources (DER) or renewable energy sources (RES), of controllable loads and possibly co-generation or storage units. Beneficial integration of DG into a distribution grid, and also of large-scale renewable generation into transmission systems, poses a considerable challenge to existing power system planning and operation methods and software tools.
Wind farm design Successful wind power plant design and system integration should consider both the design requirements for the internal network of wind power plants (WPPs) and a reliable performance and control of the plant amid full compliance with the grid code. A generation interconnection study ensures an optimum integration of the WPPs into the grid with regards to reliability as well as cost-effectiveness. Grid code compliance investigationA thorough analysis enables the project developer and/or network operator to identify the right connection strategy before the actual installation of DER and/or RES genearation. Such an analysis considers several aspects including optimum connection point to the grid, dimensioning of the switchgear considering technical and economical aspects, losses, power quality and reliability of supply. Power system interconnection studiesPower system interconnection studies support the interconnection of DER/RES plants while maintaining the overall power system’s technical performance. The results identify impacts on power grids and solutions to address relevant issues and provide technical advice to either the project developer or to the system operator. Wind turbine modelingComprehensive modeling of wind turbines with specialized simulation software forms the basis for detailed wind farm investigations, which are an essential part of any design or interconnection study. The validation of model performance to measurements is required for certification in some markets and is a valuable sales asset for the turbine manufacturers.
The comprehensive scope of services for the design of DER/RES installations and their integration into existing power systems ensure adequate technical performance with respect to relevant grid codes and highest economic efficiency.
