Q&A session - Webinar on Future Electricity Grids

Q&A session - Webinar on Future Electricity Grids

Ratings: (0)|Views: 733 |Likes:
Published by Fernando Nuno
The European power system has changed considerably in the last 15 years. The liberalisation and unbundling of the electricity market has led to increased international power flows and reduced influence of the system operators. Meanwhile, renewable and other small-scale uncontrolled and variable energy sources are being installed in the system.

Session 1: The effects of these changes on the power system will be discussed. They will be analysed along with how investments in the transmission system can help, and the different options available. Special attention will be given to power flow controlling devices and HVDC as they are getting much attention in the power industry at the moment.

* Effects of wind energy in the international power system.
* Investments in the transmission system, why are they lacking, what the options are (overhead, cable, etc.).

WEBINAR on FUTURE ELECTRICITY GRIDS1/2
Q&A session
Q: Is there any European wide regulation expected?
A: Yes, there will be a European regulator (ACER) and there are Europeanregulations, but the question is to what degree they will have an influence:binding powers or being implemented by member states is not the same.
Q: Common cost ratio overhead vs underground: 5X1 rural flatterrain, 10 X1 difficult rural terrain, 20X1 for urban undergroundinstallation. Is that correct?
A: if you talk about costs: probably yes, but as mentioned in thepresentation: if you can't build it, the costs is not important.
Q: In smartgrid, we are trying to implement our control IT &communication technology to make the distribution grid morerobust, reliable, efficient, etc. Is it possible to use thesetechnologies at Transmission level in a similar way as fordistribution grid?
A: This is a very open question as there are different aspects to it. First of all, the transmission system is a meshed system while the distributionsystem is usually radial. IT, communication and control techonology arealready used in the transmission system, probably more than in distribution.Some techniques will be transfered from distribution to transmission or fromtransmission to distribution, others will not...
Q: So, increase of RES generation would need a lot af new network to balance the wind intermittent production, wouldn't it?
A: Depends on where you put the generation, but it would need more gridthan traditional generators.
Q: If we are thinking about the future grids, it seems to me thatHVDC cables should be a big part of it
A: I agree, although they are also not perfect
Q: How grid is used as a storage device?
A: The power system can not store energy, but by reducing increasing othergenerators elsewere
