The ongoing collaboration between ISGAN Annex 6 & ETIP SNET WG1 on the topic of Flexibility for Resilience is gaining momentum with a dual workshop held on the 1st of June 2021.
The workshops, divided into two parts, involved a large amount of interaction and engagement, gathering a total of 40 participants from ETIP SNET and ISGAN.
Presentations at the workshops provided multifaceted views, from the international work of CIGRE, the overall System Operation and TSO perspectives, to the DSO and Local energy community perspectives. A large number of relevant projects and solutions were presented, including OneNet, iFlex, Platone, Coordinent, FlexPlan, CINELDI, OSMOSE, Flextranstore, BD4NRG, X-FLEX, LINK Holistic perspective & Inertia monitoring for system state observability.
A conclusion from the workshops is that many of the ongoing projects are providing highly relevant knowledge to the question of How flexibility can support power grid resilience. Some of the mentioned solutions include:
Furthermore, standardisation of solutions (architecture, tools, platforms) is an important step to be taken to increase reliability & acceptance in order for large scale deployment.
We would like to thank all participants, with a special thanks to the presenters:
The workshop was organised by Irina Oleinikova & Emil Hillberg.
