CESI offered consulting services for three substations in Lithuania
17 . Mar . 2022

In the last few years, the government of Lithuania set up a program to synchronize its local power system with Continental Europe power systems (Continental Europe Synchronous Area, CESA) and to ensure, at the same time, an increase in system inertia for strengthening the grid.

This last aspect has an increasing importance throughout Europe, considering the significant growth of power generation from renewable sources in Lithuania.

In this respect, CESI, who already worked with the local TSO in the previous phase of the project (preparation of technical specifications), was asked to render technical assistance to the client during all phases of design, manufacturing, factory acceptance, installation and commissioning of three new synchronous condenser (SC) systems.

CESI’s scope of works covers all main electromechanical equipment that will be installed, namely rotating machines, flywheels, power transformers, HV equipment for grid connection, together with electrical auxiliaries and control and protection systems.
