China Ming Yang Wind Power Group Ltd. has announced that its MY1.5Se wind turbine generator (WTG) has successfully passed low voltage ride through (LVRT) performance tests and has received the certification test report.

The report was issued by the Wind Power Grid Connection Research and Evaluation Center at the China Electric Power Research Institute (CEPRI), a subsidiary research institute of the State Grid Corp. of China. Ming Yang also confirmed that all of its wind turbines are capable of fulfilling LVRT requirements.

The LVRT requirement is specified under the grid code and refers to the WTG's ability to react properly to sudden fluctuations in grid voltage, and to remain connected to the grid under these abnormal conditions.

Ming Yang's MY1.5Se WTG has also undergone and successfully passed symmetric and asymmetric testing under different voltage fluctuation and electrical system fault conditions at the CEPRI, according to the company.
