Getting ready the algorithm for quality check of Common Grid Models

SCC team (Belgrade) is analysing the data in preparation for the final demonstration of the algorithm for quality check of Common Grid Models (CGMs).

Regional Security Coordinators use Common Grid Model (CGM) for several core operational procedures such as: security analysis with remedial actions, coordinated capacity calculations, outage planning coordination, critical grid situation, etc. Results of those analyses should help Transmission System Operators (TSOs) in operational planning and better prepare them for real-time events. The better forecast of system state and the higher the quality of CGMs, the more plausible findings of analyses done using these CGMs for TSOs in the every-day operation of their power networks. This is the prime motivation for SCC to begin the development of CGM quality checks within the CROSSBOW project.

After the development of the algorithm for quality check of CGMs during 2020, SCC was supported by one of several CROSSBOW technical partners, Slovenian company ELPROS, in the process of implementation of the mentioned algorithm as a separate module of their software tool – WAProtector. This tool has the ability to gather forecasted (provided from CGMs) and realized values (provided from SCADA) of voltages, active and reactive power flows from regionally most relevant elements, store and process these data and finally perform report generation and real-time visualisation of computed quality indicators (displayed in a form of graphs and maps). Currently, SCC engineers are performing preparations for the final demonstration of this CROSSBOW module, which is a part of the larger product – CROSSBOW Regional Operation Centre Balancing Cockpit.
