Amendments to the network code on requirements for generators – Comments from the engine power plant sector

08 March 2024

EUGINE, EUROMOT and EUROPGEN welcome the ACER Recommendation to review the network code on requirements for grid connection of generators (NC RfG), which carries significant improvements when it comes to harmonising the grid connection requirements at EU level and making them future-proof.

As associations representing engine power plant manufacturers at European level, we would nevertheless like to highlight a certain number of issues that will hamper the level-playing field between different manufacturers and technologies. These issues are further explained below and relate to:

  • An unclear definition of “synchronous power generating module” (SPGM)
  • Lack of consideration of different response-times to LFSM-O events
  • Lack of consideration of mCHP issues with FRT requirements
