Special Session (SS12): The GARPUR probabilistic reliability management approach & criteria

Wednesday, 21 June 2017
13:50 - 15:30

Theatre A

Organiser(s): Efthymios Karangelos, University of Liege, Belgium

Abstract

As the pan-European electric power system is facing growing uncertainties (e.g., due to renewable generation, the ageing of system components, the climate change, etc.) and technical advancements (e.g., demand response, energy storage, high performance computing, big data, etc.) the migration from the deterministic “N-1” criterion to probabilistic reliability criteria is an emerging requirement as well as oppoortunity to maintain the system performance at a desirable level, while minimizing socio-economic costs.
The GARPUR (“Generally Accepted Reliability Principle with Uncertainty modelling and through probabilistic Risk assessment”) project aims to design, develop and evaluate such new reliability criteria to be progressively implemented over the next decades at a pan-European level, while maximizing social welfare. A particular innovation of GARPUR is a comprehensive application of the same probabilistic approach within the TSO different activities & timescales: system development, asset management and power system operation.
This session brings together leading contributors to the GARPUR project from the industry and academia to present and discuss the key project outcomes, particularly:
- the GARPUR probabilistic reliability management approach and criterion (RMAC);
- the pathways for the progressive implementation of the GARPUR RMAC across the TSO practices ranging from system development, through asset management to operational planning & operation;
- the pilot tests for the validation of the GARPUR RMAC on realistic power systems and in near real-life conditions.
The GARPUR project is performed by collaborative efforts of 7 TSOs (Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Iceland and Norway), 12 R&D providers and 1 innovation management expert, and co-funded by the European Commission (7th Framework Programme). The overall project costs are estimated to 10.9M€, with the corresponding requested contribution from the European Commission of 7.8M€. GARPUR started September 1st 2013 and will run for 4 years until August 31st 2017.
