Grid integration of wind power - skills development programme for Eskom

Ea Energy Analyses has been leading a consortium consisting of the Danish TSO,, and a DSO, SEAS-NVE, which was training Eskom engineers in methodologies for connecting wind power plants to the grid.


The skills development programme was designed to expose Eskom engineers to a detailed training programme on the grid connection of wind turbines based on case studies of individual projects in Denmark and project applications for grid connection in South Africa. The aim was to provide Eskom engineers with the ability to provide accurate budget quotes to RE projects applying for grid connection under the RE-IPP Procurement Programme. System operations, grid codes and system planning were also included in the training programme.


The programme consisted of a three-week training course in Denmark in November 2011 and two follow-up on-the job training workshops in South Africa in February 2012.
