WindGuard Certification has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with South Korean power converter manufacturer Plaspo. The companies will work together on the development and construction of a measurement container for Fault-ride-through (FRT) tests.
The MoU signifies the start of a campaign by the South Korean government to optimise its grid infrastructure and expand their use of renewable energies. The campaign includes the enforcement of more rigid grid codes and the implementation of obligatory measurements and certification. WindGuard Certification and Plaspo will supply the necessary measurement equipment.
FRT containers simulate artificial fault conditions at grid connection points. They are used to prove capabilities of grid stabilisation of a wind turbine and its adherence to the medium voltage grid guidelines. WindGuard Certification’s FRT-Container can simulate over voltage as well as voltage drops in medium voltage grids.
