New central control and monitoring center for load balancing in the power transmission network, Austria
The sharp rise of volatile load flows, infeeding from solar and wind power plants, and cross-border balancing power exchanges result in more stringent requirements for the functionality and flexibility of the grid regulation system. The grid operator and balance area manager Austrian Power Grid AG (APG) has therefore decided to replace the existing secondary and tertiary control of the Austrian interconnected grid that at present is integrated into the SCADA/EMS system, by a new stand-alone system. Fichtner assisted APG throughout all project phases.
