Wind Tutorial

Ancillary Services and Wind Power Plants: Status and Experiences

On Tuesday, 16 October 2018, prior to the 17th Wind Integration Workshop, a tutorial will be held by international experts on “Ancillary Services and Wind Power Plants: Status and Experiences”.

Book your ticket here!

High share of renewables in the power system can only be achieved if wind power plants also offer ancillary services, e.g. voltage control, balancing services and frequency control. Within this tutorial technical solutions and practical experiences are presented and discussed.


About our Tutorials

In our tutorials, you have the opportunity to deepen your knowledge regarding crucial renewables topics in an intimate setting.

In intense presentations by specially invited experts you gain not only detailed knowledge but also a unique hands-on-experience.



The wind tutorial will be held at the workshop venue, the KTH. Please come to the main registration desk in the M building to collect your conference badge before going to the tutorial.


Preliminary Program

The tutorial will take place in room M 24 of the KTH.


Lunch (in tutorial room)



Balancing Response with Wind Power Plants
Lecturer: TBA (Enercon, Germany)

Control Reserve as a System Service has the important role to stabilize the grid / the frequency whenever an incident occurs in the grid. As of today 3 GW of Primary Control Reserve are necessary in Continental Europe to compensate the first loss of generation or consumption. Further Control Reserve products help longer-lasting incidents. Diverse remunaration schemes are in place to give the System Responsible Parties access to adequate Control Reserve which also gives owners of Power Plants access to a source of revenue. How may Wind Energy be used to offer Control Reserve? What technical solutions exist and which are possible? Which regulatory and technical boarders exist that hinder Wind Energy from offering Control Reserve? This talks wants to give answers to these questions along with presenting finished and actual pilot and research projects.





Short Break



Inertia Response with Wind Power Plants
Lecturer: Nicholas Miller (GE Energy Consulting, USA)

Inertia-based controls for wind turbines provide an opportunity to help address concerns associated with the decline in synchronous inertia and displacement of traditional sources of frequency sensitive generation.  This lecture will examine the fundamental enabling technology for frequency sensitive controls that depend on turbine inertia. Topics will include variations in control philosophy; discussion of why these controls are not exactly the same as synchronous inertia; examples of system performance impacts; and review of some emerging grid requirements.

Short Break



Renewable Energy and Ancillary Services in Spain
Lecturer: TBA (Red Electrica, Spain)

Firstly, the presentation gives an overview of the Spanish Electricity System and its main characteristics. It shows also the specific Control Centre for Renewables (CECRE) and the great level of observability and controllability reached for renewable energies in Spain. Further on, the presentation gets deeply in which is the actual situation of ancillary services: last regulatory changes, mandatory prequalification tests to participate and real participation of renewable energies. Lastly, we will talk about the necessary coordination to avoid impact in congestion management from the units participating in balancing markets.





Short Break



Voltage Control with Wind Power Plants
Lecturer: TBA (Enercon, Germany)

The presentation gives an overview on voltage controlling with wind power plants. After showing typical reactive power ranges of wind turbines and explaining various control types, practice examples and field test results as well as constraints in project specific parameter settings will be discussed. As a final point losses from reactive power provision will be introduced and an insight on German and international discussions on possible remuneration of reactive power provision shall be given.
