GIZ Supports TEIAS Experts with Professional Training

TEIAS EXPERTS CERTIFIED ON VOLTAGE CONTROL OF POWER SYSTEMS AND MANAGEMENT OF RES OPERATIONS

A three day training was organized on 3, 4, 5 July 2017 with the support of GIZ and the Ministry of Energy and Natural Recourses to provide extensive information to experts of the Turkish grid operator TEIAS on “Voltage control of power systems considering the impact of renewable energies (RES)”. The training offered its participants the opportunity to acquire the knowledge they need to establish frameworks for the sustainable and beneficial integration of increasing volumes of renewable-generated electricity into the grid and be able to advice on the associated grid-related challenges. Focus are were compliance and commissioning procedures and performance tests as well as guidelines for power system reserve requirement & management considering RES operations. The training was provided by M.P.E. Moeller & Poeller Engineering and RENAC Renewable Academy.

As a direct follow-up of the training, the Turkish grid code will now be reviewed in October together with TEIAS to better accommodate for the rising share of renewables in the system. This will further enable Turkey to move towards the integration of renewable energy and accommodate for example the new 1 Gigawatt Windpark to be established by Siemens and two Turkish companies Turkerler and Kalyon.
