Grid connection optimisation and grid connection planning

NETWORK CONNECTION OPTIMISATION

The realisation of a reasonable grid connection point, i.e. in relation to the project with bearable costs for cable route and feed-in infrastructure, is increasingly becoming a bottleneck in project development.

Use your EEG rights and question the assigned network connection point. Often a better connection can be achieved. For this purpose, we prepare our own network impact assessment and represent you competently with the network operator.

  • Checking the assigned and alternative network connection points
  • Network calculations with DIgSILENT PowerFactory
  • Macroeconomic comparison of possible network connection points
  • Negotiation of the grid connection situation with the grid operator

In recent years we have achieved significant improvements for many project developers, both small and large, in their projects in many grid areas throughout Germany, e.g:

Wind farm 14 MW
Elimination of transformer station, Σ savings approx. 600T€
Wind farm 9 MW
Reduction of cable route by approx. 5.2 km, Σ savings approx. 400T€
PVA 750 kW
Shortening of cable route by approx. 3 km, Σ savings approx. 200T€
Single WTG 3.45 MW, already in operation
Cable route 10 km too long, compensation € 1.2 million

NETWORK CONNECTION PLANNING

We supply tailor-made solutions for the grid connection of your plant.
In the draft planning we determine the optimal connection concept with reliable information for your profitability calculation.
In the implementation planning we implement this concept professionally and consistently up to the successful commissioning of your plant.

  • Design and implementation planning of the electrical infrastructure with complex load flow calculation
  • Calculation of electrical losses and economic optimisation of electrical equipment (cables, switching stations, etc.)
  • Route planning
  • Support in securing areas
  • Obtaining necessary permits
  • Tendering of components and trades
  • Coordination of plant certification
  • Construction management and supervision as well as support during commissioning
