Project General Description

The integration of Wind Power in the Egyptian Power System & Establishment of Wind Integration Grid Code is designed by the Arab Republic of Egypt with the support of African Development Bank Group. The project comprises a technical report as a component that is expected to include: a) a wind power integration grid code that would determine the typical requirements for wind power generators and modification of codes for thermal units as may needed; and b) a list of system requirements for smooth integration of newly installed wind power plants, which are essential for a secure and stable operation of the Egyptian Power System.

Project Objectives

The principal objective of this project are to review the impacts of integrating up to 7200 MW of Wind Power into the Power Grid and examine the impacts of wind farm characteristics on the potential static & dynamic stability issues.

Beneficiaries

The main beneficiaries of the project are Government of the Arab Republic of Egypt and the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC).
