The test was conducted by China Electric Power Research Institute ("CEPRI") at the Zhangbei Wind Power Test Base in Hebei Province. CEPRI is a subsidiary research institute of the State Grid Corporation of China ("SGCC"), a multi-disciplinary and comprehensive research institution in China’s electric power sector.
The LVRT requirement is specified under the grid code, and refers to the WTGs’ ability to react properly to sudden fluctuations in grid voltage, and to remain connected to the grid under these abnormal conditions.
"It is the first large-scale and grid-connected 3.0MW WTG with a built-in full power converter that has successfully passed the LVRT test," said Chuanwei Zhang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ming Yang. "The official certification of our MY-3.0MW SCD WTGs from the CEPRI is an important endorsement of the quality of our WTGs. We believe our first-class WTGs will allow us to strengthen our market position, while we tirelessly improve the competitiveness of our WTGs and solutions to further enhance our leadership in the market."
