Title: Phase 1 Integrated Systems Test and Characterization Report for the 5-Megawatt Dynamometer and Controllable Grid Interface

Abstract

This report details the commissioning of the 5-MW dynamometer and Controllable Grid Interface (CGI) at the National Wind Technology Center (NWTC) at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The purpose of these characterization tests was to verify the dynamometers performance over the widest possible range of operating conditions, verify interconnection with and fault generation capability of the CGI, gain insight into system-level behavior, and establish confidence in measurement data.
