BHPP and KHPP to Provide System Services for Reactive Power Regulation in 2011

In 2011, Bratskaya HPP of OAO Irkutskenergo and OAO Krasnoyarskaya HPP will be providing system services for reactive power regulation without energy production. The decision on providing these services by 4 generating companies (OAO Irkutskenergo, OAO Krasnoyarskaya HPP, OAO RusGidro and OAO TGK-1) was made by the System operator of UES following the results of suppliers’ selection on July 11.
The selection of providers of services for reactive power regulation without energy production was performed in compliance with the Order of the Government of the Russian Federation No.117 as of March 3, 2010 “On the procedure for selection of energy industry subjects and electric energy consumers, providing services on ensuring the system reliability and on approval of changes made to the Acts of the Government of the Russian Federation on the issues of providing system reliability services”.
Commentary:
Evgeny Fedorov, CEO of OAO EvroSibEnergo: “Providing services for reactive power regulation with the use of generating equipment of Bratskaya and Krasnoyarskaya HPPs is possible due to the specific work mode of the hydrogenerator — the synchronous compensation mode. This fact is very important for the consumers of UES of Siberia as it provides them with the necessary level of voltage. And for us this means the possibility of maximum use of HPPs“.
