Review on Australian grid codes for wind power integration in comparison with international standards
MetadataShow full item record
This paper compares Australian grid codes for wind power integration with the international standards. First, the wind status in Australia is investigated to provide general background of wind power utilization all over the country. Next, technical requirements of connecting wind turbine in Australia are discussed including a comparison with international grid codes. Finally, a brief investigation is provided on issues in complying with grid requirements including harmonization of grid codes and their compliance certificate. In addition, practiced solutions from perspectives of wind related manufacturers to grid compliance issues will also be presented. The latest update of the grid codes provided in this paper will help the Australian transmission system operators in examining recent regulations in comparison to international practices while also giving some insights to the wind turbine manufacturers, developers and operators in improving their services and/or products in complying with the existing standards.
