Overview

As more and more renewable energy projects come online, the integration of such distributed generation of different scales has been challenging. As a result, grid connectivity can be highly complex, from technical, project and regulatory perspectives. On top of that, there is likely to be a different set of factors in every territory you operate in. We can support you through this process, with a consultancy service that quickly identifies the key issues and the best way to solve them.

What we offer

Markets have their own requirements, and are developing those as they manage complex power systems and negotiate the inclusion of new generation technologies of varying forms. In Australia, for example, the market operator (AEMO) requires all new generators to meet a strict set of network access standards. Lloyd’s Register is an expert provider of power systems services, developing the required Generator Performance Standards required as a connection agreement.

 Across the global sector, Lloyd’s Register provides expert advice in both commercial and technical matters, using its network of contacts across market operators, NSPs, wind and solar OEMs and EPC providers, to minimise risk, compress timescales and work towards the best outcome for each and every project.

 Our team of power engineering experts can quickly understand your project and requirements and help you determine the best way to achieve your goals. This might include:

  •   Connection feasibility
  •   Connection studies (R1)
  •   Connection negotiation
  •   Commissioning support, hold point testing and R2 testing
  •   Power systems model development
  •   Substation design (primary and secondary and protection)
  •   Design review
  •   Due diligence

 

 

 

For equipment providers, we develop power systems models for use in network analysis, and can test models against AEMO’s dynamic acceptance criteria, providing feedback and model update strategies to ensure compliance and market acceptance.

What are the benefits?

Our expert power engineering team will ensure that your project is fully compliant with network rules and the regulatory environment.

For equipment providers, we can help you to model a development that complies. For developers, we will provide project access standards that meet the rules. For EPCs, we will evidence that your commissioned projects match the connection agreement.
