Power Systems Engineering for New Energy

We have established a partnership with Clean Technology Partners to undertake advanced power system studies as required by NSP's and AEMO. We've integrated with our load and generation profile simulation tools into modelling platforms such as PowerFactory/ PSSE/ PSS Sincal/ PSCAD. It can be used for:

  • Power quality analysis inc fault/contingency event studies, active/reactive power & voltage/frequency control

  • Exploring the impact of high solar uptake of solar in a MV & LV networks & potential remedies

  • Grid connection studies to determine grid impacts from a new development

For: broadacre estate & precinct developers, distributors.

Network & tariff optimisation tool

This model can be used for:

  • Understanding the impacts of low-voltage vs high-voltage connections

  • Understanding customer contributions

  • Ensuring customers are on the appropriate network tariff

Developed for: property developers, large energy users
