WindGuard Certification now offers a complete package of electrical characteristic measurements in a mobile test unit for power generating units, such as wind turbines, photovoltaic systems, energy storage facilities, and internal combustion engines. WindGuard Certification offers manufacturers not only the certification of prototypes, but also all measurements necessary to obtain the required proofs according to VDE-AR-N 4105, VDE-AR-N 4110, VDE-AR-N 4120 and IEC 61400-21-1. The new test unit allows fault-ride-through (FRT) test procedures to verify dynamic grid support according to applicable guidelines such as FGW TR3, IEC61400-21-1, and the latest revision of DIN VDE V 0124-100 published in June 2020. This test standard requires a proof of grid stabilizing abilities even on smaller power generating units intended to be connected to the low-voltage grid. The unit allows the configuration of a wide range of fault conditions - for example, the undervoltage drop depth and the overvoltage excess are variably adjustable. Even two-phase faults are possible. The new evaluation software developed by WindGuard Certification provides real-time feedback and the entire dynamic performance tests can be completed in just a few days. The new mobile test unit allows verifying the dynamic performance ability of power generating units up to a nominal capacity of 1MW in accordance with all current guidelines and standards.
