Seminar: Grid-Connected Small Wind Electric Systems and the Bidirectional Impact between distributed RES and Small Island Grids

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Andreas Armenakis

Venue: Unesco Amphitheatre, University of Nicosia

Wednesday, June 20, 2012, 6-7 pm


The ambitious European 20-20-20 targets will increase the penetration of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) in the grid, including small and efficient units distributed in the medium or low voltage networks. As Distributed Generation (DG) spread in a geographic area, time, location and weather inter-dependencies, loads and demands get more importance, introducing breakthrough changes in the way electricity will be generated, distributed and used. Due to the increase in the numbers of RES connected to the Distribution Network, and the requirement of the European Distribution System Operators (EDSO) to integrate them sufficiently into the network, grid code compliance rules have been implemented to ensure system contribution of RES without disturbing the quality, safety, and reliability of the grid. Before connection to the grid, RES must verify that they comply with regulations, such as voltage control – both steady state and dynamic, voltage dependent reactive power injection or absorption, and fault ride through stability.


Andreas Armenakis graduated in Electrical Engineering (Leipzig) followed by a Master in Engineering (Berlin). He worked for 10 years in Germany for Siemens and Preussag (today Babcock) and also in Cyprus for the Carlsberg Brewery, designing and executing complex Energy and Automation projects. Today, Andreas works for the Electricity Authority of Cyprus, developing the High Voltage Distribution Network, including the integration of Renewable Energy Sources (RES). His publications are mostly related to Energy Management and Integration of RES.
