In November I did isolated grid simulations together with Solvina. They used equipment called SSPS developed together with Svenska Kraftnät. My role was to do the tuning of the governors. The simulations were carried out in Hissmoforsen and Kattstrupeforsen, both plants owned by Jämtkraft.
In October I was in Kainji, Nigeria, and performed training for the customer on turbine governor HPC640 and voltage regulator HPC840. I also participated in the commissioning of the refurbished units G7, G8 and G11.
In September I commissioned an excitation system FMTB811 and a turbine governor HPC640 in Granboforsen, a hydro power plant in the north of Sweden owned by Jämtkraft.
In August I was in Höljebro, a gydro power plant in the north of Sweden owned by Fortum, and commissioned a turbine governor HPC650. The generator in Höljebro was a PowerFormer, a high voltage generator developed by ABB with stator windings manufactured with cables, not copper bars.
In July I went to Tuas in Singapore, a waste to energy plant to do some fault finding and modifications on two excitation systems HPC640 delivered by ABB Generation.
In June I commissioned the first turbine governor of model HPC650 in Rengård, a hydro power plant in the north of Sweden owned by Skellefteå Kraft. As an employee at ABB Generation (later Alstom Power) I had been responsible for the development of HPC650.
In May I went to Kalayaan in the Philippines to do some fault finding on an excitation system FMTB822 delivered by ABB Generation. In May the company HydroCon Consulting was established.
