Integrated G59/3 protection - AWC 500 - G59/3 Compatible with Various wind turbines
Upgraded turbine controller platform AWC 500 integrated with UK's protection requirements G59/3 Normally, a controller platform requires a new designed controller system and a fitted relay to protect the connection to the grid. DEIF Wind Power Technology has with resources in UK managed to integrate all the vital functions into one complete Grid Protection Module (GPM5·1) to fit into the AWC 500. The following protections are implemented as part of the platform Feature Name ANSI code Two stage over-/under voltage 27, 59 Two stage over-/under frequency 81L/H df/dt (ROCOF) 81R Vector jump/shift 78 Neutral Voltage Displacement (NVD) 59 Two stage over-/under voltage 27, 59 Two stage over-/under frequency 81L/H df/dt (ROCOF) 81R Vector jump/shift 78 Neutral Voltage Displacement (NVD) 59 (on roadmap) Component specific information The AWC 500 can also be used simply as a standalone grid protection module. For example, where G59/3 demands needs to comply with existing installations. As a standalone solution, the AWC 500 can either be part of another EtherCAT based system; offering easy supervision; or it can be integrated into other systems using Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, CANopen, DNP3 or other relevant protocols (on request). Furthermore, our integration includes a fully automated G59/3 Type Verification test including documentation as specified by the standard.
