DNV GL launches LVRT testing services in India to support grid stability.

Jump to the comments

Today during Windergy 2017 DNV GL, the world's largest resource of independent energy experts and certification body has officially launched their full suite of LVRT Testing services for the Indian wind market to support grid stability and improve security of supply. 

 

The goverment of India has ambitious plans to achieve 175 gigawatts (GW) of renewable capacity by 2022, 60 GW being in wind energy, to compliment it's growth plans.

 

Whilst wind energy becomes more of an integral part of the Indian power system, operators of transmission networks have added more stringent requirements for grid connected wind turbines. The main challenges are the Low Voltage Ride Through (LVRT) capability, the reactive power demand during these voltage dips, and the power recovery after the voltage dip. The LVRT test provides transmission network operators and wind turbine manufacturers with reliable voltage dip capability results.

 

As India aims high to broaden their renewable energy capacity and takes more stringent measures to improve the quality, DNV GL launches its LVRT testing services, following up with the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission's (CERC)

mandate to make these tests grid compliant for all operating wind turbines.

 

DNV GL with decades of international accredited measurement experience will now offer a full suite of LVRT Testing services in India, with respect to container design and build,  scheduling, forecasting, demand estimation, contingency plans and protection system. This is not limited to other testing services DNV GL can provide like Power Performance Management, Power Quality and Acoustic measurements.

 

Mathias Steck, Executive Vice President Asia Pacific, DNV GL – Energy comments,"I am very pleased to see that India is finally making these tests mandatory. With the welcome and ambitious renewable energy targets the current Indian government has set this is an absolute must to ensure grid stability."

 

After successfully commissioning 20,000 LVRT tests on 50 different wind turbines being operated worldwide, and leveraging over 20 years of operating experience in India, DNV GL aims to now support the growing demand for accredited testing services.
