DIgSILENT Grid Code is a standalone application. The platform gathers the necessary tools for analyzing events in power systems, especially voltage dips, according to grid codes requirements
or user specifications.
The software is built on several different modules.

Data Visualizer: for visualizing data, test files, plotting graphs, checking additional parameters
Grid Code Compliance Analyzer: for verifying the behaviour of the control Systems of power plants during external events or perturbation like voltage dips according to grid code requirements. Grid codes can be edited with the GridCode Editor.
Model Validation: compares experimental results with numerical model outputs; which is a crucial part in developing models, especially if the models take part in the decision process.
Flickermeter IEC 61000-4-15: voltage flickermeter according to the standard.
Harmonics IEC 61000-4-7: analyzes voltage harmonics, inter-harmonics and higher frequency components according to the IEC 61000-4-7 standard.
IEC 61400-21 Toolbox: Measurement and assessment of power quality characteristics of grid connected wind turbines: Flicker emission, Flicker during switching operation, current harmonics.
File Edition Tools: Cut, Resample and Merge Files to cut the file around events, resample data series and merge files from different source (i.e wind and mechanical data records with voltage dip measurements).

Reports are automatically generated in MS Word format.
