ADVANCED TRAINING ON MODELLING AND SIMULATION OF WIND ENERGY CONVERSION SYSTEMS WAS DONE FOR MEMBER OF CORPOELEC (VENEZUELAN POWER UTILITY)

6 and 7 October 2010, Caracas, Venezuela

 On 6 and 7 October 2010, was held in the meeting room in La Electricidad de Caracas building, San Bernardino, Caracas, the advanced training on modelling and simulation of which energy conversion system, it was lectured by Dr. Francisco M. González-Longatt, Research Associate at The University of Manchester, United Kingdom and Vice-President of the Venezuelan Association of Wind Energy (Aveol).

An elite group of twenty three professionals of the planning department of CORPOELEC (formers utilities: SENECA, CADAFE EDELCA CVG), the Fundelec, and the Ministry of Electricity, received first-hand Theoretical details necessary for system modelling and dynamic simulation of wind turbine commercially available technologies.

These skills are necessary to undertake impact studies to integrate these sources of electricity, power systems, and to be integrated in electric power systems, where simulation is the most important calculation.

In addition, Dr. Gonzalez-Longatt has presented some practical experiences in modeling and simulation of power systems to the integration of different types of wind turbines, these case studies were shown using the simulation program known power system DIgSILENT ® PowerFactory ™ and MATLAB ® Simulink ™.

Also during these two days, participants had the opportunity to share and exchange experiences of actual cases Dr. González-Longatt.

The second level of this training will be the implementation of the theoretical models already analyzed, step by step in the simulation program recognized DIgSILENT® PowerFactory. Upon completion of this training the participant would have minimal skills and abilities necessary for the implementation of wind turbine models in the software, and undertake simulations to study network integration.

Further training will be aimed at explaining the basic mechanisms for interpreting results of this particular type of simulations and also introduce mechanisms to mitigate the effects of the integration of extremely high levels of penetration in power systems.
