Organiser

Organised by the UK - NW:Manchester local network.


About this event

The Power Technical group invites you to attend this seminar on Connecting Renewable Energy to the Grid. The event is free to attend and it will add to your Continuous Professional Development (CPD) hours. Please register your place now by clicking the link below as the seats are limited.

The event features two presentations:

Grid Code Requirements to Connect Offshore Wind in the UK.

The UK now generates over 5.1GW of electricity by around 30 offshore wind farms. This presentation explores the technical requirements that an offshore wind farm must be compliant with before it is allowed to connect to the GB electrical transmission network.

The presentation will commence with design of an offshore wind farm and also briefly describe the ownership boundaries. This will be followed by reactive power strategy and its importance and then the presentation will explore the grid code requirements.

Enabling the Network Integration of Renewables; Land Use and Environmental Aspects

Large numbers of small to medium scale developments are being developed that can respond very quickly to fluctuations in the operation of the grid network. The majority of schemes currently being proposed consist of arrays of gas engines, batteries or a combination of the two. The surge in this type of development and the constraints that apply result in land use planning and environmental pressures. This presentation looks at the impacts that this form of development has, siting and design requirements and the development risks associated with the planning and environmental assessment processes.

The event also features opportunity to network with peers from industry and academia during our breakout session.

Lecture - Mon 11 June 2018 at 18:00

2018 is all about commemoration, celebration and inspiration for the RAF – three words that are also synonymous with IET EngTalks. Air Marshal Julian Young will provide you with insight as to why the Royal Air Force is often cited as being one of the most technologically advanced military forces globally.
