Primary Committee:
Electric Machinery Committee (EMC)
Sponsored by:
Task Force on Grid Code Impacts on Generator Standards

Session Type:
Page/Slide Count:
Time: 1 hour

Grid operators are specifying more stringent requirements for synchronous generators to safeguard power network operational integrity and stability as worldwide energy transitions are occurring to accommodate large scale integration of renewable energy sources.

Owners and other stakeholders are responsible for specifying generators and excitation systems need to take special care to ensure that equipment will be grid code compliant and avoid serious financial consequences.

This webinar presents a summary of the findings of an IEEE PES Electric Machines Committee (EMC) task force which was established to investigate and report on impacts of worldwide grid code changes on generator standards. The following key subject areas will be included:

1. Generator capability envelope and design challenges.

2. System fault related requirements.

3. Generator excitation systems.

4. Operating new and existing generators to support the energy transition.

Panelists: Robert Thornton-Jones (moderator), Ana Joswig, Kevin Chan, Les Hajagos, and Luis Ruoco
on behalf of the Task Force on Grid Code Impacts on Machine Standards, part of the Generator Subcommittee within the IEEE PES Electric Machinery Committee
