Sanikiluaq power system impact study

building on coastThe Hamlet of Sanikiluaq is located upon the Belcher Islands within Hudson Bay. It is the southernmost community within Nunavut.  

Nunavut Nukkiksautiit Corporation, along with Qulliq Energy Corporation and other project stakeholders have commissioned this study to investigate potential impacts of integrating a proposed wind energy project upon Sanikiluaq’s electric power system.   

Northern Energy Innovation’s studies include: i) a power flow (analytical) study, ii) a quasi-static time series analysis (steady-state) study, iii) an electromagnetic transient study (dynamic), iv) and a protection system (analytical and dynamic) study.  We anticipate completing our studies in August 2023.
