Grid Support and Ancillary Services

4 Jun 2014
Hamburg, Germany


This is a brand new event about improving the acceptability of wind into European power grids.

This forum will walk delegates through:

  • The different grid balancing/ancillary services wind farms can offer to Transmission System Operators (TSOs) and/or Distribution Network Operators (DNOs)

  • The technologies and estimated costs involved in offering capabilities such as frequency response, reactive power and voltage control, including:
    - power electronics
    - substation infrastructure
    - turbine design
    - automation and control systems

  • How will grid compliance and ancillary services shape the future of turbine and substation design and their control?

  • The latest pilot projects and research about which ancillary services wind farms can offer, technical risks and the economics involved 

  • Grid operators' requirements from wind developers
