ENTSO-E has organised two public stakeholders’ webinars: “Stability Management in Power Electronics Dominated Systems” and “Grid Forming capability and Rate of Change of Frequency (RoCoF) withstand capability”, taking place back-to-back on 23 November.

Online, 23 November 2022, 09:00-15:00 CET

  • 09:00-12:00: “Grid Forming capability and Rate of Change of Frequency (RoCoF) withstand capability” focusing on connection network code amendments proposals

    • Hybrid event: Brussels/online
  • 13:00-15:00: “Stability Management in Power Electronics Dominated Systems” focusing on Research, Development and Innovation Challenges

    • Online event, moderator: Íris Baldursdóttir, senior advisor, ENTSO-E
    • Webinar presentation slides
    • Agenda:

      1. Tackling System Stability: A Prerequisite to the Success of the Energy Transition
      • Knut Hornnes, Stability Management Workstream convener
      1. Learnings from Project Inertia and next steps
      • Joao Moreira, Project manager
      1. New Demand Units and Advanced Capabilties
      • Mario Ndreko, StG CNC convener
      1. 5x5min national examples of stability related challenges and events
      • Statnett (Nordic examples), Knut Hornnes
      • GB Transmission System, Benjamin Marshall
      • Continental Europe, Rui Pestana
      • Energinet, Jun Bum Kwon
      • Amprion, Bartosz Rusek
      • Eirgrid, Mostafa Makhtvar
      1. Reaction from EC DG Energy, George Paunescu
      2. Closing remarks
      • Norela Constantinescu

The two public events focused on the many and complex challenges that TSOs and all those connected to the power system are faced with as we move towards a carbon neutral future with a growing share of renewable generation and a power electronics dominated grid. The webinars brought together experts in the field of grid operations and development for an exchange on the acceleration of the uptake of new technologies for stability management and RoCoF withstand capability.

  • What is the impact of the energy transition on system behavior?
  • How can different stability phenomena compromise security of supply?
  • How can stakeholders collaborate and where to focus RD&I efforts?
  • What is the impact of high RoCoF events on nucelar power plants and the risk of system splits?
  • What is the ENTSO-E proposal for amending the connection network codes regarding RoCoF and grid forming?

These and other topics were discussed during the two events, together with concrete national examples of stability related challenges. As reference, please view the ENTSO-E Position Paper on Stability Management in Power Electronics Dominated Systems, published in June 2022 (LINK).
