Special Session (SS09): Grid Code Requirements and Renewable Sources Integration

Tuesday, 20 June 2017
16:50 - 18:30

Room 2.219/2.220

Organiser(s): Stanko Janković, GOPA, Germany


Grid Code is a document which defines technical requirements for maintaining stable and secure operation of the power system in real time and in the future for each country.. There are many national power system operators or associations of power system operators (for example European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (abbreviation ENTSO-E), East African Power Pool etc.) in the world that have already issued Grid Codes, while in another country we are still waiting for this document to be written. In most cases Grid Code is one single document, but sometimes it consists of several linked documents usually named Annexes. Technical requirements for connection and operation of renewable sources are either integrated in a Grid Code, or they are written in a separated document. The main intention of this special session is to provide an overview of Grid Codes inside and outside Europe; to point out similarity and differences; to emphasize some unclear technical requirements which can be interpreted in different ways. Emphasis is on renewable sources integration and the special session includes presentations and share of experience from TSO and DSO representatives, consultant who was involved in the process of writing Grid Code and manufactory representatives with their share of interest in producing equipment which can meet the needs defined through Grid Code requirements.
