For dated references, only the edition cited applies. Consequently it is appropriate to apply different protection settings for short term parallel connection.

Supergrid, grid primary and other transformers can be considered active for the purpose of determining voltage control limits. Often referred to as a distributed enginesring Embedded Generator.

Scottish Power Limited Safety Rules.

Synchronism The condition under which a Generating Unit or System is connected to another System so that the frequencies, voltage and phase relationships of that Generating Unit or System, as the case may be, and the System to which it is connected are similar within acceptable tolerances. It is programmed to certain fixed parameters dictated by the DNO, these typically include voltage, frequency, ROCOF rate of changephase angle and so on.

No part of this publication may be reproduced, More information. For the purpose of this document a single Generating Unit will also be described as a Power Station. Wind Energy Generator name and address hereinafter called the Engineerign Energy Generator which expression. recommeendation

Engineering Recommendation G81 – Part 1: Willis Ferguson 2 years ago Views: Embedded generators 5MW and greater. They go to the nearest substation and isolate the cable to make it safe to work on. Australian Guidelines for grid connection of energy systems via inverters. The Generating Plant may be permitted to operate in parallel with the DNOs Distribution System for no more than 5 minutes in any month, and no more frequently than once per week.

Should any of these areas go outside the programmed limits, then the relay will cause a protective device such as an MCCB or other type of circuit breaker to open, thereby instantly disconnecting the generator from the grid for protection and peace of mind.


The same regulation empowers the DNO to disconnect any part of the Customer s Installation which does not comply with the requirements of Regulation In general this should not be an issue with most Short-Term Parallel Operation as at the time of synchronising with the mains most sites will normally be generating only sufficient output to match the site load.

Engineering Recommendation G59 Issue 3 Amendment 1 August 2014

Circuit Breaker Asymmetric Switching Duty. The general form and content of this statement is specified by Ofgem and covers the existing Distribution System as well as authorised changes in future years on a rolling basis. Jargon Buster This glossary is intended as recimmendation aid to explain electrical terms that you may come across. The document does not attempt to describe in detail the overall process of connection from application, through agreement, construction and commissioning.

Engineering Recommendation G59 and Engineering Recommendation G99

Therefore, to correct this error, the two references i. Only the new Generating Unit will be required to meet protection requirements of this Engineering Recommendation. Recently there is a move by Manufacturers to create black-box models of their Generating Units or Power Parks using their Generating Units.

Except where otherwise stated, the terms defined in this section shall have the same meaning as in the Grid Code and the Distribution Code. The error relates to the British Standard which is to be used to determine the flicker contribution from small wind turbines.

The requirement to submit models in this form for directly connected synchronous Generating Units is written into the Grid Code and Distribution Engineeirng For other generation technologies, the Grid Code includes the requirement to submit validated detailed models in respect of non-synchronous Generating Units which are aggregated into a Power Park Module recommendaion where they are also classed as Medium or Large Power Stations.

ENA Engineering Recommendation G5 Planning levels for harmonic voltage distortion and the connection of non-linear equipment to transmission and distribution networks in the United Kingdom.

It is intended to address all aspects of the connection process from standards of functionality to site commissioning, such that Customers, Manufacturers and Generators are aware of the requirements that will be made by the local DNO before the Generating Plant will be accepted for connection to the Distribution System.


For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document including any amendments applies. Where Grid Code requirements apply, under the Distribution Code it is the Generator s responsibility to comply with the Grid Code requirements.

A short-term parallel is required to maintain continuity of supply during changeover and to facilitate testing of the Generating Plant In this mode of operation, parallel operation of the Generating Plant and the Distribution System will be infrequent and brief and under such conditions, it is considered acceptable to relax certain design requirements, such as protection requirements, that would be applicable to long-term parallel operation.

If the duration of parallel connection exceeds this period, or this frequency, then the Generating Plant must be considered as if it is, or can be, operated in Long-Term Parallel Operation mode.

Latest updates to G59 regulation (effective 1st Feb 2018)

Installer A person who carries out the installation of Generating Unit s on behalf of a Generator and who carries out some tecommendation the functions required of a Generator during the installation and commissioning phases of a Power Station.

The timer should be a separate device from the changeover control system such that failure of the auto changeover system will not prevent the parallel being broken The following design variations from those in the remainder of the document are appropriate for infrequent short-term parallel operation: Specific enquiries concerning this document should be addressed to: No part of this publication may be reproduced.

A specific Loss of Mains LoM protection relay is not required, although many multifunction relays now have this function built in as standard. Fault Level There is the need to consider the effect of the Generating Plant contribution to fault level.
