Power System Studies
Having performed power system studies for renewables projects for almost a decade, we now have over 1GW of project experience across the NEM. Our power systems team can assist clients across the whole grid connection process (R0, R1 and R2).
CTP has invested heavily in software, knowledge and capability to deliver our services. Studies are conducted in the following software packages;
- PSS Sincal
- DIgSILENT PowerFactory
We can generate accurate power system studies and analysis for Solar, Wind, Battery, Synchronous generators, Waste to energy, and Off-grid projects as required by clients, NSPs and AEMO.
GPS / AEMO Connection Application Package
CTP will take you through all the steps of the Grid Connection Application process, including:
- Preliminary Feasibility Studies
- Detailed Connection Enquiry
- Offer to Connect
- Grid Connection Agreement
Dynamic Model Acceptance Test (DMAT)
Advanced python scripting and automation techniques allow us to efficiently handle the large amounts of data and multiple scenarios demanded by the NSPs.
CTP has already developed a full set of automation and analysis tools for the recently released Dynamic Model Acceptance Test requirements from AEMO.
