October 18th to 20th – Tractebel Engineering was present at the GCC Power 2010 in Doha – Qatar


Tractebel Engineering held a booth at the exhibition of the 8th Regional Cigré Conference in GCC countries to present its activities in the Middle East region and its simulation tools.
The presence of Tractebel Engineering in the Middle East has been strengthened by the opening of the Dubai Office two years ago. GCC Power 2010 was the opportunity to present the simulation tools Tractebel Engineering uses for the studies carried out in the region and to meet new potential users of these tools. Some demonstrations of FAST and SMART FLOW were also organized on demand. 

Karim Karoui (Tractebel Engineering) presented a paper on the topic “Development and implementation of a detailed dynamic load model and staged testing of DEWA network.” Based on a presentation of the developed models and of the simulation results obtained with EUROSTAG®, this technical paper emphased the necessity to take into account the behavior of the different types of air conditioning systems during faults on the grid. This is especially required when these motors represent an important part of the load as it is the case in the Gulf region.
