The common workshop, co-organized by Umbrella and iTesla, was held successfully at ENTSO-E premises in Brussels on June 21, 2012. Approximately 50 participants from industry, academia, government officials etc. joined the common workshop, with full support by ENTSO-E.

 

Full suport by ENTSO-E and EC

Panelists (from left to right): Hubert Lemmens (ENTSO-E Convenor RDC), Irena Bonvissuto (EC officer), Frans van Hulle (EWEA coordinator), and Rudolf Baumann (ENTSO-E Convenor SOC-RG-CE)

 

Presentations by major stakeholders and ENTSO-E representatives (from left to right): Frans van Hulle (TradeWind coordinator), Konstantin Staschus (ENTSO-E secretary general), Wilhelm Winter (UMBRELLA coordinator)

 

Summary of the workshop

  • Harmonic and constructive atmosphere, well prepared presentations
  • Both projects build on results of previous studies/projects regarding the challenges in connection with the changings in electricity supply
  • iTesla and Umbrella have different approaches to reach the same aim
    • Umbrella: probabilistic approach on steady state operation within stability limits
    • iTesla: ambitious dynamic approach
  • In iTesla also the industry is involved in the consortium - Deployment
  • Close cooperation between the projects
  • At the end of both projects: Common recommendations to ENTSO-E regarding operational rules supporting the future coordinated operation of the pan-European electricity transmission network

 

Statements of the panelists

  • EC thanked for the efficient work and between the both projects

  • Panelists agreed

    • that solutions for a secure system operation are urgently needed

    • that the development of the current transmission grid does not fit to the current development of the renewableยดs infeed

    • that a combination of new grids and more flexibility of the grids is necessary

    • that the needed tools have to be developed in close cooperation with the operational staff

    • that all grid users (generators, demand facilities, devices as HVDC) (also the renewables) have to support the system stability as already stated in the consulted network codes (e.g. Requirements for Generators)

  • Besides the main developments undertaken by each consortium to reach the objectives of its own project, the two Projects will further cooperate and jointly develop recommendations to ENTSO-E regarding operational rules supporting the future coordinated operation of the pan-European electricity transmission network.
