We develop a Toolbox for innovative grids

On behalf of “Agora Energiewende” we examine possibilities to optimize grid planning and grid operation for an optimal utilization of power grids with high share of renewable energies. Examples for the considered tools are amongst others High-Temperature Low-Sag Conductors, Dynamic Line Rating, Online Dynamic Security Assessment (DSA), renunciation of the conventional (n-1)-criterion and active distribution grids.

To make sure, that the study will lead to sound results, frequent meetings with experts of the energy sector take place. This consulting board consists of representatives of the four German TSOs, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, the Federal Network Agency and other stakeholders.

The first meeting with the consulting board took place on 27th of March 2017 in Berlin, where different “tools” were introduced and thoroughly discussed. Finally, the tools were assessed according to their potential to reduce grid expansion, their acceptance and feasibility and other criteria.
