As India aims high to broaden their renewable energy capacity and takes more stringent measures to improve the quality, DNV GL has officially launched its full suite of LVRT Testing services for the Indian wind market to support grid stability and improve security of supply.
As 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. The full suite of the testing services offered by DNV GL includes container design and build, scheduling, forecasting, demand estimation, contingency plans and protection systems.
