Title Description Type
Fault Ride Through Effects on Alternators Connected to the Grid

Led by the development of wind farms throughout Europe, changes to Grid Codes have been implemented requiring embedded generation schemes to stay connected during the presence of system faults (Fault Ride Through requirements).

White Paper
International Grid Codes with STAMFORD | AvK

New regulations are being introduced across the globe to ensure supply security and continuity as generation moves from a centralised model to a distributed one. Cummins Generator Technologies is leading the way in enabling power generation companies to comply with these regulations.

Grid Code Ready™ Alternators

As the industry's technology leader, we have invested several years researching and also developing Grid Code solutions, committing substantial resources to ensure our customers can supply Grid Code compliant alternator sets.

Grid Code Legislation

Cummins Generator Technologies has taken the lead to support legislative requirements. Since the 1st January 2013 there has been a requirement for compulsory compliance to grid codes in Germany, with the rest of Europe expected to follow suit.

Benefits and challenges of a grid coupled wound rotor synchronous generator in a wind turbine application

Wind turbine size and technologies have been developed rapidly over the last decade. Until 2000, most wind turbines were based on cage induction generators that are directly connected to the grid.

White Paper
Critical parameters of a synchronous alternator for a grid code compliant generating set

To minimise the impact of the unstable grids on the consumer, transmission and distribution system operators worldwide are coming up regulations - Grid Codes that specify performance expectations on power plants.
