Solar energy assessment

DNV GL offers a flexible environment for testing grid connected power electronic converters up to 1 MVA

The growth of distributed power generation is driving use of power electronics to connect renewable energy sources to existing grids. For component manufacturers and utilities, testing is the key to ensuring these grid inverters and converters perform as specified.

To meet this need, DNV GL has developed extensive knowledge into the behaviour of power electronics, allowing us to offer comprehensive independent testing. Our Flex Power Grid Lab in Arnhem, the Netherlands, provides you with a flexible testing environment:

  • testing capacity at low and medium voltages up to 1 MVA
  • high bandwidth to create harmonics up to 2.4 kHz
  • ability to create static and dynamic voltage phenomena.

With the ability to produce electrical boundary conditions which simulate realistic grid conditions, the lab can evaluate the interaction between the grid and power electronics in terms of power quality, system stability and performance under fault conditions.

You will receive a KEMA Report of Performance. We can also provide input for modelling or validate your model.
