Between 2019 and 2020, the Scientific and Technical Centre of Unified Power System (STC UPS (Moscow branch)) (a member of the RAWI) underwent a restructuring that significantly changed its corporate structure and management system, and created new divisions and teams to develop promising areas and products. Today, the company operates in a new format as STC UPS, JSC Group of Companies.
The holding company provides development of applied, engineering, investment and legal solutions. The geographical footprint of the company includes 70 Russian regions of Russia and its neighbouring countries. The level of personnel qualification and scientific and technical base allows for efficient solution of tasks of any complexity. The Group comprises of:
– STC UPS Emergency Control, a centre of competence in digital and physical modelling of power systems, static and dynamic stability studies

In particular, VetroSGC together with STC UPS Development of Power Systems developed and approved the national standard “Electric Power Industry; Distributed generation; Technical requirements to generation facilities based on the usage of wind turbines.”
The main sections of the national standard include general requirements for wind power plants and wind turbines:
- requirements for wind turbines for the permissible duration of operation in various frequency ranges;
- requirements for wind turbines for the permissible duration of operation in various voltage ranges
- requirements for the participation of wind power plants in the general primary frequency control
- requirements for wind power plants participation in active and reactive power correction
- requirements for Automated Process Control System at wind power plants
- requirements for the scheme of power distribution of wind power plants
- requirements for ensuring the stability of wind turbines
- requirements for on/off conditions and/or synchronisation of wind turbines.
To date, 90% of all Russian wind farms were commissioned on the basis of the power distribution schemes developed by STC UPS Power System Development.
