Testing, inspection and certification

There are many reasons that make an independent verification of your power generation unit or plant necessary. One way to prove compliance with the grid connection rules is an independent and accredited certification. Whether a systen operator requires proof of certification of the generation unit or secondary technology or even the entire power generation plant depends on the requirements of the respective country's grid code requirements.
A certification is also worthwhile to give an overview of the technical assets of your power generation unit -- confirmed by an independent third party

In 2004, we have issued for one of our customers the world's first unit certificate. Since then, the market for renewable energies has evolved rapidly. Nowadays all generating units must possess a valid unit certificate so that these can be sold in series in the German market. We have continuously improved and expanded our portfolio for you and offer you comprehensive accredited certification services in the international market environment.
The process of unit certification implies investigation of the electrical behaviour of the wind turbine, the inverter or the combustion plant for conformity with the respective grid connection rules. In addition to evaluating the results of Type testing and Measurement, we also validate the simulation model provided by you as the manufacturer.

As part of the unit certification, we evaluate, among other things, the following electrical properties of your generating units:

  • Voltage quality
  • Fault ride through behaviour
  • Reactive power
  • Active power
  • Protection equipment and behaviour

FGH test lab 

We will be happy to offer you also the underlying type tests and measurements through our test lab. You can view a list of all certificates issued for generating units at the website of FGW. On request we will provide you with binding statements on the validity of certificates.
Would you like to have measured the electrical properties of your product, such as inverters, storage systems, wind turbines or internal combustion engines? Are you looking for a testing lab for your network control unit or your protective device? Our testing lab, accredited according to DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025:2005, offers you qualified conformity and type tests for your generating units and components in accordance with the relevant test regulations and according to your individual customer specifications.

With our measurements and test reports, we provide you with a basis for unit or component certification.
We are also at your service for the commissioning of a turbine in the itemized verification process with our highly qualified staff and the latest measurement technology. Active participation in the relevant committees and working groups always ensures a processing in accordance with the latest specifications.

Benefit from our experienced staff, state-of-the art measurement technology and extensive knowledge of guidelines.
