Advanced methodology and tools taking advantage of storage and FLEXibility in transmission and distribution grid PLANning


Guideline for the compliance of network planning tool with EU overall strategies and regulatory conditions

This deliverable includes an analysis of the interaction between the current network planning practices and regulations. It also contains a screening of EU regulation in support to the new planning tool.

Pan-European simulation results

This document will contain the results of the pan European simulations. These simulations will set border conditions for ther regional cases.

Pan-European scenario data

This document will document pan European scenario data as input for the simulations in WP 4.

Monte Carlo scenario generation and reduction

This document contains a detailed description of the developed scenario generation and reduction techniques and recommendations on inclusion of the uncertainty in a generic way in the planning problem. This is very useful in order to curb computational complexity while retaining maximum significance of the scenarios.

Probabilistic optimization of T&D systems planning with high grid flexibility and its scalability

This document compiles the results of tasks 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and 1.5. It contains a detailed description objective function of the transmission system planning and an evaluation of probabilistic security criteria and recommendations for the implementation of these criteria, a complete description of the transmission and simplified distribution network models with highly flexible elements, and description of the dynamic optimization of transmission systems planning with high grid flexibility and uncertainty. Additionally, first findings on the scalability of the developed methodology are explained in detail.

Flexibility elements identification and characterization

This deliverables contains the specification and characteristics of all the elements identified with capability to provide flexibility services. It contains the theoretical background of the pre-processor which is created

Definition and characterization of services to be provided by flexibility elements

This report will contain a definition, specification and role to be played by flexibility elements in the transport grid. It lays the theoretical methodology used later for creating the pre-processor tool.
