The Team consists of test engineers as well as power system engineers.
The team is responsible for the assessments and interpretation of relevant grid codes and grid connection standards as well as its coordination with the different Business Units. Further aspects of the grid code work are defining requirement specifications for WT development projects and to work on tools and processes to breakdown grid code requirements (usually specified at WPP level) to requirements for the various components in a WPP (e.g. the WT, WPP control) by means of simulations with available simulation models as e.g. DIgSILENT Power Factory, PSCAD. A mayor part of the team’s work is the execution of all relevant electrical grid compliance measurements for WT’s (including component level- and sub-system level tests) developed by SGRE. The results of the grid code assessments will be utilized for development projects and as input for evaluation and assessment of measurement results of grid compliance tests. Furthermore, results are used for internal verification and validation as well as for external parties (e.g. customers, system operators and certification bodies to provide required certificates for specific markets). Other aspects of the work are the understanding and defining of new functionalities future WT’s need to provide to fulfill grid codes as well as the supporting the feature and parameter ownership for the features the team is responsible for.
