Grid Connection of Renewable Generation (S2021.04.15.Online_GCoRG.En)

This training introduces the participant to the tools and techniques commonly used in practice for the analysis of grid integration of renewables in the power system with focus on wind power and photovoltaics (PV). This two-day course provides a systematic approach for performing a grid compliance study, by covering the following topics:

  • Steady-state behaviour with consideration of grid code requirements
  • Short-circuit calculation
  • Harmonic analysis according to IEC 61000
  • Dynamic simulation for fault behaviour

Each topic above includes theoretical background and a practical exercise in which participants acquire hands-on experience in the use of PowerFactory.

The course introduces the different renewable generation technologies, starting from the most common wind turbine (WT) types and up to the various photovoltaic (PV) inverter systems. Throughout the proceedings, the participant learns how to take advantage of the task automation capabilities of PowerFactory by executing DPL scripts which greatly simplify particular tasks such as generating a PQ diagram of a Wind/PV park at the grid connection point or the analysis of generation and losses of a wind park. Although most of the exercises are based on WT systems, due to the similarities between wind power and photovoltaics in terms of grid connection studies, the same exercises can be tailored for solar power as well.
