Response of wind power facilities to power shortfalls

Response of wind power facilities to power shortfalls

​​​​​​​​The aim of this certification is to ensure compliance with current legislation and to contribute to the stability of the electricity system​​​​​​​​​

The aim is to certify the capacity of electric power generation facilities that used wind power as the only source of primary energy (group b.2 of Royal Decree 661/2007), to remain connected to the electricity system without becoming disconnected due to voltage dips directly related to the existence of correctly cleared short circuits that can occur in the electricity system.

This certification is aimed at companies responsible for electric power generation facilities that use wind power as the only source of primary energy (group b.2 of the Royal Decree 661/2007)​​.

AENOR is accredited by ENAC (01/C-PR130) for the certification of the response of wind power facilities to power shortfalls

For the award of the certificate of compliance for the response to voltage drops in wind farms the following activities are carried out:

  • Field testing of wind turbines and FACTS devices (Flexible AC Transmission Systems) installed to ensure compliance with requirements.

  • Validation of both the wind turbine models and the FACTS devices.

  • Simulation of the wind facility's behaviour when there is a voltage drop.

Once the certification process has been successfully completed, the organisation obtains the certificates of conformity demonstrating the compliance of the wind power facility with Operating Procedure O.P. 12.3, Requirements for the response of wind power facilities to power shortfalls October 2006, of the General Secretary of Energy
