Keeping the World’s Wind Developers Up to Date with the Newest Interconnection Standards

ImageThe remarkable growth of wind power generating capacity around the world has created a renewed focus on the fundamental role of interconnection standards for grid reliability. Since the power derived from wind farms is not inherently predictable or controllable – at least to the degree seen in ‘fossil fuel’ generation – precautions must be taken to protect the utility grid. This article describes the application of modern in-turbine dynamic reactive power solutions. Wind generators around the world have deployed these solutions, such as the D-VAR RT, to enable wind turbines to meet the grid reliability standards that now exist in many countries.
