Distributed Wind Power Development

Innovative Solutions for Distributed Wind Power Technology


Wang Baifang
Assistant General Manager, Product and Solution Center of Goldwind

Based on the development history of foreign countries, China is a big market for distributed wind power in Central Eastern and Southern China, and the experience in developing distributed wind power of European peers can be borrowed during the process. The plan in the past was more than 19 million kw. Based on the 14th Five-Year Plan, in my opinion, the distributed wind power can only meet the goal of the Plan if the planned capacity is multiplied by 2 or 3.

Distributed Wind Power Development£ºYesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Senior Product Market Manager, Envision Energy

The development of distributed wind power can be divided into three stages. The first stage is from 2010 to 2018, which is called the infancy stage, when the state introduced a series of policies to support the development of and laid the foundation for distributed wind power; the second stage is from 2018-2022, which we call the growth stage¡ªa stage for "improving internal skills," when the development threshold is lowered through technological innovation. For example, through technological innovation in the past two years, Envision Energy has built distributed wind power projects in Jiangyin, which has become a model for the whole country; the third stage is beyond 2022. After the rush installation this year and next, everybody is surely to shift attention, and distributed wind power will usher in a new blue ocean period.

The Overall Solution of Distributed Wind Power and Multi Energy Complementary Based on Parity Era

First, distributed wind power products should be customized. We must develop products that adapt to different resources and environmental conditions. In some places, not only the forms of the host, the wheel hub and the tower should have the construction conditions under different wind resources, but also, in my opinion, the host factory should have the ability of flexible design, because the resources or construction conditions have different structural forms to ensure the adaptation to the project. Therefore, the customization technology should have not only the customized capacity and area, but also special video surveillance, and should have the following considerations: whether video surveillance is needed if there is no worker on site? Are there any safety problems? How about the construction plan? And how to customize lifting solutions? especially for distributed wind power. We should achieve maximum benefit with minimum investment cost.

The Research of Distributed Wind Power Generator for Grid Frequency Regulation


Li Decai
Electrical Simulation Engineer, CSSC Haizhuang Windpower Beijing Research Institute

With more and more wind turbines connected to the grid, the problem of frequency balance in power system becomes more and more prominent. This is because a real time balance between electricity consumption and production in the power system is required, otherwise, it will lead to the frequency fluctuation of the power grid, which will affect the safety of electricity consumption and, in serious cases, lead to local power outage. For large thermal power plants, a power grid frequency below 50 Hz is likely to lead to the turbine unit shock and, in serious cases, lead to the turbine blade fracture. Due to the imbalance of power, however, the frequency deviation of the power grid in the power system is inevitable, which requires the generation side to proactively follow the demand of the load and adjust the power output. For wind turbines, the output can be increased by means of paddle change, but the active output cannot be increased, because the prime mover wind is not controllable. Each frequency modulation method has its advantages and disadvantages. In my opinion, we should combine these methods for fan frequency modulation according to some local policies and requirements and through economic analysis.

High Yield Solutions in the Post-Parity Era of Wind Power in Central Eastern and Southern China

It is suggested to further promote the mechanism of market trading. During the 14th Five-Year Plan Period, the electricity reform policy will have further measures. It is expected that the whole market trading mechanism will be continuously improved to break the bottleneck of cross-users electricity sales, enabling more room for the consumption capacity of distributed wind power development, truly providing one-stop service during the 14th Five-Year Plan Period, and simplifying the development process of distributed projects. For projects with centralized development in Central Eastern and Southern China, we hope to sign long-term PPA guarantee contracts, so as to guarantee the investment hours and reduce project risks.

High-tower Technology Helps with the Connection to Grid at an Equal Price to be Achieved Sooner


Luo Yongshui
Vice Director of Technical Center, Zhejiang Windey Co., Ltd.

Based on the current situation, Windey proposed a 166-meter mixed tower plan. The plan features high safety, 20 years of maintenance-free, built-in box transformer, reduced land acquisition investment, and variable height of 160 - 170 meters, with different models and different wheel diameters matching different economy for different projects.

Exploration in Patterns of Distributed Wind Farm Development

Director of Wind Power Finance Department, HUANENG TIANCHENG FINANCIAL LEASING CO., LTD.

Truly solve the problem of small, scattered and messy projects in the current development process through every village, factory and road coverage programs, and eliminate the headache of developers¡ªfinancing. What advantages will the Three Programs bring to distributed projects, or wind power project developers? We have summarized in four conveniences: 1. The convenience for the economy of the project; 2. The convenient for projects to find financing institutions; 3. The third convenience for the management of the whole project process; 4. The convenience for effectively enhancing the active level of project trading.
