Wind Integration Seminar held in Colombia

A 2-day workshop titled "Grid Integration of Wind Energy", followed by a 3- day "Wind Generator Modelling Workshop" was organized by ISA / Colombia in Medellin from October 6-10th, 2008.

15 participants from ISA, XM, EPM and local universities attended these workshops held by Dr. Markus Pöller, Managing Director of DIgSILENT.

The workshops were initiated by ISA as there are plans to extend an existing wind park in the northern region of Colombia
to an installed capacity of 400 MW.

The workshops covered both theoretical and practical aspects of wind power grid integration, as well as modelling and simulation exercises utilizing DIgSILENT PowerFactory software; the standard simulation tool in the Colombian electricity market.
