GRID CODE COMPLIANCE AS A PART OF A POWER PLANT PROJECT

Supply of components

Deliveries of general power plant data and calculation of reactive power capacity and calculation of the operation during voltage disturbance.

Construction of power plant

Supplementing of power plant data, dynamic modelling of power plant and compliance test plan. This phase shall be completed latest three months before starting the compliance testing.

Commissioning & test runs

Execution and documentation of compliance testing. Completed latest nine months after starting the power production.

Commercial power production

Compliance test reports and validation of simulation models. Completed latest twelve months after starting the power production.

Why Ampner?

We help companies in the energy industry by simplifying their projects. Our customers can therefore concentrate on their core competence, i.e.  the construction of the power plant. Ampner VJV2013 Service Package is a “turnkey” delivery and accepted by Fingrid.

PROFESSIONAL PARTNER

Ampner specializes in grid code compliance service and power system studies. Our staff are experienced in the design and integration of power converters in power plants. Our strong background in technology and experience in an international environment provides a very competitive foundation for the operations. 

POWER SYSTEM STUDIES

Ampner’s power system studies service can be added to complement the VJV2013 compliance service or implemented as an independent project. Studies can also be applied to power plants, distribution networks and industrial plants. Power system studies include e.g. load flow studies, fault current studies, definition of protection device settings, selectivity studies and disturbance analysis.

POWER PLANT
PROJECT PARTIES

BENEFITS

Fingrid’s approval is a prerequisite for the power plant grid connection. In the extended VJV2013 compliance service, Ampner is a common partner for project parties. Our service enable the project parties to focus on their own part, and avoid double work. Our service model has been developed to be compatible with the requirements of Fingrid. Ampner will take the responsibility of the validation. The compliance service includes calculation, simulation, testing and reporting.

We are involved in the project throughout the duration of it and ensure the validation of power plant’s grid compliance. All the project partners benefit from the fact, that Ampner objectively verifies the power plant technical features. With this, it is ensured already at the planning phase, that power plant components meet the grid connection requirements without unnecessary additional costs, surprises or delays in the project.
