Darwin Microgrid Testing Facility Site Visit

Start time: 3.00pm ACST. Discover how the Darwin microgrid enables modelling of seamless transition to localised supply when power systems are overloaded or sections of the grid become disconnected due to weather events.

Since 2017 the Northern Territory Government has had a target to achieve 50% renewable generation of electricity by 2030.

The Darwin Microgrid Control Systems Testing Facility could help to integrate increasing amounts of solar energy into NT grids. The facility includes a generator simulator comprising various units; a feeder (or transmission line) simulator; solar and wind farm simulators; a grid-support simulator; an active real and reactive load simulator; a SCADA system and remote access simulation.

Find out how the microgrid enables modelling of seamless transition to localised supply when power systems are either overloaded or sections of the grid become disconnected due to weather events such as lightning strikes.

Places are limited and bookings are essential, so don’t miss out!
