Grid Connection of a 33MW PV Plant in Mali

August 18, 2016

Period:  2015


For the connection of a 33 MW PV Plant in Mali, 3E conducted the information gathering, network modelling, model validation with the grid operator, load flow studies, contingency studies, short circuit studies and transient stability studies. Within this project, 3E travelled to Mali and established contact with key staff of the engineering, simulation and renewable energy departments.
In an earlier stage of this project, 3E compared different connection options in terms of line voltage and cross section, inspected the substation to which the plant was to be connected and assessed the feasibility of a substation extension. 3E also developed the substation extension concept.
