We have published our internal operations guide for commissioning new power system assets.
The document records the current practices used by Transpower (System Operator and Grid Owner), delineating each of the four stages of the commissioning process:
- prior to commissioning
- during commissioning
- on completion of commissioning.
An abridged version of this document has been produced to provide information to third party Asset Owners about the internal process that Transpower follows and to give a high level view of asset owner obligations and the likely asset owner interactions with Transpower during the commissioning process.
A generator commissioning process workshop was held on 1 May 2014, a slide pack from the workshop is available on our presentations page.
