Simulated grid capabilities at the NWTC @NREL : "Nobody in the world can do what we can”

NWTC's Grid Capabilities Providing Value for Partners Ester Guidi, sales engineer at ABB, explains the functionality of the NWTC’s controllable grid interface to potential grid research partners. Photo by Mark McDade, NREL When the National Wind Technology Center (NWTC) at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) commissioned a new 5-megawatt dynamometer facility and controllable grid interface (CGI) in fall 2013, it created a unique opportunity for the Energy Department, industry, and other partners. “The simulated grid capabilities at the NWTC are really a strong point because you can test generation on a multimegawatt scale at medium-voltage levels and couple that with the resource variability,” said Vahan Gevorgian, an NREL principal engineer who is involved in much of the work. “In other words, you utilize full-sized wind turbines and other generator systems un...
