    Indian grid stability boost with Low Voltage Ride Through tests, DNV says

    DNV GL has launched a suite of so-called Low Voltage Ride Through (LVRT) testing services for the Indian wind market to ensure the nation’s growing capacity is grid compliant. LVRT, the ability of network-connected equipment to cope with a short-term low grid voltage event, allows grid-compliant wind turbines to maintain grid stability rather than tripping off the network. With the Indian govern
