FGW e.V. launches public and bilingual consultation for proof of grid connection conformity

  • FGW regulations according to Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/631 of 14 April 2016 (Requirements for Generators, RfG) on the agenda


Berlin, 29.06.2021 – A public consultation procedure will again be held in German and English on the current drafts of the FGW Guidelines TG 3, TG 4 and TG 8. The procedure offers companies without membership of the FGW as well as international companies the opportunity to comment and should thus ensure more transparency.

The focus of the work for the new revisions was on error correction, restructuring and the implementation of deferred work from the last revision. Furthermore, the results from the research project Netzharmonie were transferred to TG 3. A relevant topic in TG 4 was the establishment of a procedure for EMT models, with which aspects relevant to offshore wind farms were included for the first time, as well as the integration of initial approaches to generic, platform-independent models. In TG 8, the verification procedure for extra-high voltage is implemented.

The three independent public consultations on the three guidelines will take place at different times. The public consultation of TG 3 will start on 19.07.2021, that of TG 4 on 23.08.2021 and that of TG 8 at the beginning of 2022. The publication of TG 3 (Rev. 26) and TG 4 (Rev. 10) is planned for mid-2022 and that of TG 8 (Rev. 10) for the end of 2022.

Terms and conditions for participation in the public consultation, as well as the exact procedure, are available on the FGW website (www.wind-fgw.de).
