August 2015 - February 2016
  1. Power flow analysis
  2. Short-circuit analysis
  3. Transient stability analysis
  4. Enhancements to the system to ensure safe and reliable integration of wind

Objective and Purpose of the Assignment is to study the impact of the proposed West Timor Wind Farm on the existing power system.  Power systems analysis will be conducted using DigSILENT's PowerFactory.

Government of Guyana, Inter-American Development Bank

October 2015 - February 2016
  1. Select 6 sites for wind measurement
  2. Supervise and inspect met-mast installations
  3. Create quarterly wind data reports and conduct wind resource assessment
  4. Conduct training and capacity building

Government of Guyana has embarked on a non-conventional Renewable Energy Technologies (RET) program.  One of the components of the RET program is to assess the wind energy potential in Guyana.  This will be accomplished through installation of 4 meteorological towers for measurement of wind and other weather related parameters.  With one year of measurement data from the four towers, a detailed wind resource assessment and wind resource map can be developed.

Winrock International, US Dept. of Energy, NREL

February 2015 - June 2015
  1. Power flow/load flow analysis
  2. Short-circuit analysis
  3. Transient stability analysis
  4. Training to stakeholders

IWE was appointed consultant for Winrock’s project with the US Department of Energy and National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) for the Indonesia Clean Energy – Integrated Deployment Project.  IWE provided wind resource assessment, grid integration and wind project deployment consulting services.

IWE evaluated integration of one 850kW wind turbine in the eastern grid and up to five 850kW wind turbines in the East-West interconnected grid using DigSILENT's PowerFactory.  Use of energy storage was evaluated in order to provide stability to grid.

Wind energy tariff and incentives for utility-scale and small-scale projects

Solar rooftop tariff and incentives

Evaluate alternatives like feed-in tariff based on production cost and based on avoided cost.

Report is available at:

In this project, feed-in tariff and other incentives for wind energy and solar PV rooftop for both utility- and small-scale was developed using a benefits based approach.  Consultations were conducted with all stakeholders including government, developers, utility and others.  Advice to the government of Indonesia on implementation of the feed-in tariff and scaling up renewable energy was provided.
