Renewables at >50% in European grids

Since the beginning of 2020, a field test demonstrator was set up at MITNETZ STROM. This demonstrator consists of an innovative grid and data integration functionalities which support more planning options and hence more stable grid operation as well as an improved communication between Transmission System Operator (TSO) and Distribution System Operator (DSO). In Figure… » read more

Determining the potential of an aggregation of 727 houses can provide for manual Frequency Restoration Reserves in the Finnish market. The consumption of electricity of 727 households in the Helsinki area is modelled and forecasted in order to identify their ability to provide services to the Finnish transmission system operator (TSO). In the current system,… » read more
