ABB‘s Consulting unit provides the critical system planning, feasibility studies and other site-specific analysis early in the initial design of the farm. Factors such as components needed to collect wind power, boundary conditions and grid-connection strategy, among others, can significantly impact the success of the farm. ABB wind and utility expertise helps improve efficiency and maximize generation capabilities.
In addition to realizing the full power potential of a farm, ABB provides a comprehensive approach that ensures grid integration and grid code compliance. Our decades of experience with utilities and their specifications – including appropriate reactive power handling, system impact and the maximum power injected into the grid – help us speed the approvals, testing and final implementation of the farm. ABB’s consultancy also addresses reliability/availability optimization with cost/risk analyses.
