Study of Grid Code Compliance: Thanet Wind Farm
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The trend towards harmonizing grid codes within Europe will increase the demands for grid code compliance. Wind power is for several reasons not comparable to conventional power generation but will, due to large installations, need to show compliance with the grid codes. This thesis is investigating grid code requirements as proposed by National Grid (UK) and ENTSO-E. Modelling work and simulations have also been performed to investigate the grid ode compliance of Thanet offshore wind farm in UK. The work has been about investigating frequency response and fault-ride-through criterion and shows that grid codes are fulfilled in Thanet but that the model requires further work.
