Challenges in distributed power quality
Measuring power quality (PQ) on large scale renewable generation projects is common practice at the grid connection, assuring compliance to grid codes and overall voltage stability. However, this aggregate monitoring of harmonics and oscillations measures only the sum of complex interactions between hundreds of generators and cables, masking critical information on individual generator behaviour. As a result, it does not allow operators to identify the origin, timescale, or nature of PQ disturbances and their harmful effects on individual subsea power cables.
Our distributed PQ monitoring technology is safe and fast to retrofit and can accommodate any number of turbines and cables. This provides permanent and synchronous PQ monitoring for every cable in wind farms of any size, tracking when and where harmonics and resonances arise to provide earlier actionable information for operators to eliminate damaging and inefficient PQ effects at their source.
