Grid compliance test

SINTEF Energy Research has conducted a grid compliance test at VIVAs test station at Valsneset. The test was the first trial of a new mobile laboratory for grid compliance testing and was carried out in cooperation with TrønderEnergi and Enercon. The test involved an Enercon 2.3 MW turbine and showed good grid compliance qualities in the turbine.

The mobile test laboratory is for creating a controlled voltage-dip at the terminals of the generator under test, and by this the grid compliance of the generator can be tested. The grid code sets requirements to the ability of generators to ride-through certain voltage dips, though this influence wind turbine stability, structural loads and lifetime.

The mobile test laboratory is a key facility to enable research addressing these critical issues. The lab will be available for continued research and testing of grid compliance of generators. The lab conforms to the test requirements specified in IEC 61400-21 and for generators rated up to 8 MVA and 36 kV.
