A basic requirement for commissioning of generating plants and for their reliable, unfailing operation is that all theoretical planning and technical and statutory specifications are duly put into practice. In this respect, we stand by you, assuring competence and flexibility.
Protection systems must work safely, quickly, selectively and reliably so that their protection tasks for the grid and system components can be fulfilled. Therefore, we support you with the layout and assessment of protection concepts and settings. If required, we can undertake to test the protection systems based on our practical experience in more than 4,000 projects within the last ten years.
In the context of wind farm compliance testing in Ireland, we have experience in preparing grid compliance test reports for EIR/SONI grid and in performing evaluation of test data. For these projects we have:
- analysed the raw data of the measurement
- completed test reports including chapters on active power control, frequency response and reactive power capability and control, each according to the regulations of the relevant grid code of the respective network operator (e.g. EirGrid or SONI) and based on a record-template provided by the network operator
- completed the test report on fast frequency response and primary, secondary and tertiary response, also based on a template provided by EirGrid
- indicated and highlighted potential deviations in case of non-compliance.
