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.

Our Services
