According to § 19 (1) of the Electricity and Gas Supply Act (Energiewirtschaftsgesetz - EnWG) of July 7th, 2005 (EnWG), operators of electricity supply networks are required, "... to lay down and publish on the Internet minimum technical requirements for the design and operation of generating installations, electricity distribution networks, installations of directly connected customers, interconnectors and direct lines, taking into account the conditions laid down pursuant to § 17 and the general minimum technical requirements referred to in paragraph 4 ."
In fulfillment of these obligations, 50Hertz Transmission GmbH (50Hertz) publishes the present document "Technical Connection Conditions of 50Hertz Transmission GmbH (TAB 50Hertz Part A)".
Together with the other parts of TAB 50Hertz, this Part A replaces the "Grid Connection and Grid Access Rules" of May 2008.

VDE AR N 4130 "Technical connection rule for the connection and operation of customer systems to the extra-high voltage Network"
The application rule VDE AR N 4130, prepared by VDE|FNN, represents the national implementation of the requirements for type D generation systems from the Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/631 of 14 April 2016 "establishing a network code on requirements for grid connection of generators” (NC RfG) and the requirements for consumption systems from the Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/1388 of 17 August 2016 "establishing a Network Code on Demand Connection (NC DCC)".
TAB 50Hertz Part A specifies the requirements of VDE AR N 4130 for connection customers at 50Hertz.
Grid connection customers
Our "Technical Connection Conditions of 50Hertz Transmission GmbH (TAB 50Hertz Part A)" apply both to grid connection customers who connect their technical systems to the grid of 50Hertz for the first time and to those who modify their already connected systems. The criteria for a significant change are set out in TAB 50Hertz Part A.
