Successful grid code compliance studies and testing at the Waste-to-Energy plant K3 in Kemsley, UK, together with CNIM

Solvina has successfully completed a comprehensive project regarding grid code compliance studies and testing at the Waste-to-Energy plant K3 in Kemsley, UK, together with CNIM.

CNIM was the appointed EPC contractor for the power plant and assigned Solvina to perform the grid code dynamic studies and grid code compliance testing. The grid code dynamic studies were conducted in Solvina’s own simulation tool Simpow. The simulations included the following studies:

  • Automatic Voltage Regulator, AVR, and Power System Stabilizer, PSS
  • Reactive power capability
  • Fault Ride Through, FRT
  • Voltage disturbance
  • Stability of load rejection to house load
  • Voltage controller verification and validation
  • Frequency controller verification and validation.

The grid code compliance tests were c
