INCREASE partner Elektro Gorenjska d.d. is providing one of the 4 demonstration environments for testing and evaluating the developed control mechanisms which will enable the additional installation of a high number of distributed resources.
For that purpose, a new distribution transformer station 20/0.4 kV was erected in a low voltage network with numerous photovoltaic power plants already installed. As a modern control approach, a new 400 kVA On Load Tap Changer transformer was installed, offering a number of voltage control functionalities. According to the project goals, the transformer tap positions will be remotely controlled. Therefore a sophisticated remote data acquisition and control system was introduced. Following the project’s time plan, the demonstration site is now ready for testing.
Below is a picture of the Elektro Gorenjska INCREASE team at the site.
