Abstract

Rapid integration of renewable energy into the electric grid has ramifications for grid management and planning. Therefore, system operators have formulated grid code requirements to ensure that the grid continues to operate in a secure, safe, and cost-effective manner. The current state of grid code in Ethiopia, as well as the need for it, is discussed in this article. It lays out the technological grid integration requirements, with a focus on small and microgrids, which are especially important for the integration of renewable. The barriers to grid code normalization and renewable energy grid compatibility testing are identified, and suggestions for continued grid code development in Ethiopia based on Danish observations are provided. Further, a detailed comparative analysis of the Ethiopian grid code with the IEEE 1547-2003 and IEEE 1547-2018 standards is presented.
