This session will explain what Grid Codes are in general and give examples for practical problems and solutions during planning, design, installation, commissioning and testing of a Wind Farm. As an extra bonus, there will be one presentation looking at the future of wind integration in combination with energy storage from a power system operator’s perspective.
