Network Integration

When generating units and consumers are to be integrated into the system, or the system is to be expanded on the basis of AC or HVDC systems, the applicable grid codes have to be complied with. Furthermore, it is important to analyse whether disturbances could be caused in the existing system in such a way as to necessitate a modification or adaptation of the respective grid code.

DIgSILENT has many years’ international experience in the realisation of system integration projects, characterised in particular by the wide variety of system characteristics to be considered, grid codes to be complied with, and generation and system technologies used.

In addition to the assessment of requests for grid connection as well as the development of compliant grid connection concepts, the services provided by DIgSILENT also include the preparation of the preliminary and the final conformity analysis according to FGW Guideline TR4/TR8, including the required model validation.
