Description of the Working Group and Objectives
Asset management and network operation
Introduction of renewable energies inevitably presents a challenge for the electricity grid operation nowadays. Instead of an unidirectional energy flow from the central power plant to the end consumer, distributed energy resources are introduced. This requires a new method of network operation, which can actively monitor and control the flows in the grid.
This working group discusses the ongoing technological advances in the electricity grid from transmission to distribution level. Introducing intelligence at various levels (e.g. real-time voltage measurements, smart substations…) can be a solution for increasing renewable injection, while asset management becomes important when dealing with the increasing electrification.
