    Points to Note

    LIAISON GROUP MEETING

    17 June 2013

    LG Meeting 17 June 2013

  • EirGrid: Grid Access Facilitation Investigations

    • We recognise the challenge facing customers accessing a power system that in some areas is heavily congested

    • Congestion ultimately relieved by Grid25 reinforcements • Body of work kicked off to investigate potential use of

    interim “smartgrid” measures to squeeze as much as we can from existing infrastructure and in doing so reduce constraint levels and facilitate access

    • Initial focus is Mayo area where a lot of generation is looking to connect in advance of grid reinforcements

    • Investigations will consider Special Protection Schemes (SPS) in detail plus other possible constraint mitigation options at a conceptual level

    • Hoping to complete initial investigations by Oct. 2013

    LG Meeting 17 June 2013

  • EirGrid: Pre-Energisation Data • Contractual obligation on generators to provide dynamic models at

    least 6-12 months prior to energisation • Models must comply with Grid / Distribution Code • Models enable EirGrid study the impact of the new generation on

    power system stability • Today 5 of the 9 windfarms due to connect over next 3 months have

    not provided compliant models • Very concerned about meeting energisation dates if situation not

    rectified • Two significant reasons why delays could arise:

    1) If models submitted at short notice and issue is identified in the studies, there may be insufficient time to develop and implement mitigation solutions

    2) If models submitted too late EirGrid may not have sufficient time to complete studies in advance of connections

    • Will provide a paper on pre. energisation data requirements and associated process prior to next meeting

    LG Meeting 17 June 2013

  • EirGrid: E-applications System

    • New online customer connection application system under development

    • Vendor contract awarded

  • Guideline to Where EGIP Applies

    • Full EGIP applies for the following; • New ESBN substation or second connection • > 2MW installed

    • EGIP with relays only & no ESBN breaker applies; • Demand user • >2MW

    • G10; • Demand user •

  • Refund for Some Contestable Works

    • Where ESBN requires full EGIP but Nulec is LCTA then Nulec costs applies

    • This can create a refund at handover stage payment for contestably built MV connections

  • Complaints • ESB Networks have established complaint process

    specific to generators

    • Complaints to be emailed to DSOGenerators@esb.ie

    • Subject header to set out ‘Complaint with regard to offer for connection to ‘DGxxx or TGxxx ‘

    • Aim to respond to complaints within 20bd

    • Where not possible to respond within that timeframe, we will advise of a timeframe for a complete response

    • Process to be published on website in coming weeks

    • EirGrid process available at http://www.eirgrid.com/customers/customerservice/customerqueriesand complaints/

  • Capacity Relocation

    • Large number of queries received

    • Some clarity required on ruleset

    – Impacts on the system including harmonics

    – What is meant by evidence of need to relocate

    – What is meant by negligible impact on the systems
