Aloha Hawaii

By |2019-05-10T12:35:24+00:00May 10th, 2019|

Solvina has finished the first island operation test on a Wärtsilä power plant with reciprocating engines in Hawaii, USA. The tests were performed in close collaboration with Wärtsilä to show the feasibility of island operation on one of their newly built power plants. It was demonstrated that the power plant could handle sudden load changes of up to about 23% of full load and keep the frequency within ±3 Hz, which can be seen as very promising results to ensure safe and stable operation of the expected islanded grid.  Thank you Wärtsilä for another successful collaboration!

We would like to welcome Gustav Sondell as a new member of our Dynamics & Control team at Solvina. Gustav has recently finalized his Master Thesis project “Improved control strategies for primary frequency control in Swedish combined heat and power plants" at Solvina. The thesis investigated different control strategies that could be used to improve the frequency control performance. His knowledge in process design and control will be a most valuable contribution to our competence portfolio. We are looking forward to get to know you Gustav!
