2Quality characteristics of Power V (220 V, 110V or different)2. AC - sinewave3. 50 (60) Hz4. 3 phases5. Availability
3Reasons for PQM Electrical energy is an open market and the quality of theproduct has to be definedTQM (total quality monitoring) must also be done for this product.The user has the right to get a product which fits to the standard (EN50160)The supplier has to guarantee the quality.In judicial proceedings the prosecutor has to present the facts.
4Situation TodayEnergy has been monitored since electrical energy has been distributed.The flow of active power and reactive power is known very well in most of the substations.Faults have been recorded by the use of paper recorders or in protection relays.Power quality has been measured in case of troubles.
5Renewables are coming“Renewable Energy” are a lot of small power plants feeding into the grid.Sometimes they can control the voltage level.Voltage variations and Harmonics are coming up more and more because of electronic loads and decentralized power generation.
6Standards and Regulations EN Voltage levels in public power gridsIEC harmonics measurementIEC flicker measurementIEC PQ measurement methodsIEC Measurement and assessment of power quality characteristics of grid connected wind turbines
7EN 50160 EC-directive 85/374 – standardization of the product liabilty lawsElectricity became a productQuality characteristics for the productElectricity (voltage) have been usedEN 50160Customers can be sure, that the quality of their voltage supply is in any point of the supply grid, under normal conditions, at least conform to the EN 50160
22When and where is EN 50160 valid ? Connection point public grid – customerLow voltage (400V)and medium voltage (1kV to 35 kV) systemsUnder normal operation conditionsNot after faults !New: application guide !
23IEC ClassesClass A: This class is used where precise measurement is necessary, such as contractual applications that may require resolving disputes, verifying compliance with standards, etc. Any measurements of a parameter carried out by two different instruments complying with the requirements of class A, when measuring the same signals, will produce matching results within the specified uncertainty for that parameter.Class S: NEW “under construction”. This class is used for statistical applications such as surveys or power quality assessment, possibly with a limited subset of parameters. Although it uses equivalent intervals of measurement as used in class A, the class S processing requirements are much lower.Class B: This class may be used for quality surveys, trouble shooting applications and other applications when low uncertainty is not required.
24Additional StandardsVoltage levels in customers grids (e.g. IEC )Emission levels of equipment (e.g. IEC x)Regulations for the connection of customers to public grids (e.g. TOR D2 in “D A CH CZ”)Special standards for renewable energy (e.g windmills)Environment for ITITIC, former CBEMA curveVoltage interruptionsUnipede statistics,SAIFI, SAIDI, CAIDI, etc.)
25Europe All EC members have a regulatory body. They should get the PQ data from the grid companies.They will then summarice this data for average statistics.In Future grid tariffs will depend on the supply quality.

36Wind Power Plants What makes wind mill measurements special ? 1. Parameters of EN50160:connecting wind farms to thepublic grid2. Parameters of :type testing of wind mills
37Windpark EN50160 Example: EN50160: wind farm monitoring at BEWAG (Austria)

42Grid Connection Wind farms in Austria and Europe Typical grid connection
43Grid Connection of Wind farms At the beginning:Single wind mills in MV gridWind power was growingTroubles with voltage varations and flicker came upSolutionCombining wind mills to wind parksBringing power more to „higher short circuit power“
44Austria and WindfarmsMost of the wind power is here (~1 GW)
46Grid Connection of Wind farms Typical size of Wind mill: 2 MWTypical Wind farm: 10 mills = 20 MWEastern Austria: several wind farmsSingle Wind mills: directly connected to MV distribution cable (typ. 20 kV)Wind farms: directly on MV transformerMore Wind farms: have an own 20 kV/110kV transformerLoad balance with hydro power pump stations on 380 kV level
47Load Balancing Hydro Power Pump Stations for Load Balancing in the mountains380kV
49Conclusions PQ monitoring is a must in the future. It is still to define how common reports and procedures shall look alike.The requirements differ from case to case and different instruments can deliver different data.Combined instruments which can give PQ data, fault data, energy flow, etc. seem to be the future.Central servers that provide the data to different departments will be used.Completely automated data exchange between the grid company, the regulatory body and the customer is from the technical point of view possible but requires more defined data formats and reporting types.Renewables require special measurements and monitoring.The producers of these instruments are well prepared for this challenge.
