Grid code compliance in megawatt projects – Practical commissioning in the Netherlands

Register Now

Europe’s booming solar markets have seen new grid code compliance standards being introduced recently, and we will discuss what that exactly means for plant operators.


Discussion participants

Ehsan Nadeem Khan, Grid Code Compliance Engineer, meteocontrol


Marian Willuhn, Editor, pv magazine

In this pv magazine webinar, together with our initiative partner meteocontrol, we are taking a deep dive into the process of fulfilling grid code compliance in the Netherlands. In addition, recourse is also made to Germany. Both countries are examples for most common procedures widely used in Europe.

Last year, meteocontrol discussed the difference between fulfilling the requirements for generators by testing or by documentation in theory. In this webinar, after a year of first hand experience with the verification process of a megawatt scale project in the Netherlands, Ehsan Nadeem Khan, Grid Code Compliance Engineer at meteocontrol, can share with us his practical experiences and personal takeaways from co-operating with the investor, the certification body and the transmission system operator. Khan will also focus on the certification process of the plant and the extensive testing procedures in the Netherlands.

Join the free webinar to learn more about grid code compliance standards and how different approaches in Europe require different actions from plant owners. The webinar will include detailed technical presentations along with interactive Q&A sessions – providing attendees with the opportunity to put their questions to the speakers and become a part of the discussion.
