Voraussetzungen / Organisatorisches

In addition to the lectures by university staff, some of the lectures will be given by experts from power industry and TSOs. Before attending this lecture, it is recommended to visit following lectures: Betriebsmittel und Komponenten elektrischer Energiesysteme, Betriebsverhalten elektrischer Energiesysteme.


The lecture gives an overview on the transmission system operations and how to control the system in the growing challenges and changing environment, like continuous development of electricity market, extensive cross-border electricity exchange throughout the continent and rapid growth of generation from intermittent Renewable Energy Sources (RES). This requires a need for close cooperation of the European Transmission System Operators as well as the development and implementation of new tools for system operation including a joint platform of harmonized technical rules. The lecture comprises technical and organizational aspects for interconnected operation including load and frequency control, voltage and reactive power control, load-flow management. Stability issues are investigated based on the analysis of major blackouts. It is explained why and how the electricity market has been implemented. The lecture is given in English since growing cooperation among TSOs and other parties in the electricity sector requires a common technical terminology and communication language. In this lecture following topics will be handled: - Interconnected operation, key figures, systems worldwide - Operational challenges, integration of renewables, real time system operations - Technical and organisational aspects of interconnected operation - Power system stability - Legal frameworks for TSOs and energy markets in Europe - Operational practise - today and tomorrow - Operational reserves and disturbances
