 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The interstate integration of power grids provides multiple advantages concerning operation security, integration of renewable energy as well as energy trading. Due to this fact the UCTE interconnection expands continually since its establishment. Consideration is given to different scenarios of joint operation of UCTE and NORDEL with power grids on the territory of the former USSR. Due to the fact that such an interconnection is second to none in the World in terms of the scale and distance of the interconnection and number of countries involved, strong R&D and innovations are urgently required along with the recent development of technologies. Bulk power grids may encounter major blackouts, which originate in increasing complication in monitoring, operation and control of interconnected power grids as well as in limited knowledge of the total system state. Therefore the possible future interconnection between the European and Russian electricity transmission systems requires elaborating methods for monitoring, control and protection of large scale systems and especially for the support of their interconnections. The development and prototypically implementation of these new methods and tools is the major goal of the ICOEUR project. New technologies like Wide Area Monitoring, Control and Protection as well as advanced network controllers (FACTS) and HVDC systems will be considered. Envisioned ICOEUR goals can be achieved only in close cooperative work of experts, with extensive knowledge of EU and Russian power systems as well as manufacturers and network operators. The ICOEUR consortium involves leading experts in all these domains and guarantees efficient collaboration and knowledge required for testing the methodologies developed. The joint development of innovative monitoring, simulation and control concepts, tools and equipment through international diversified ICOEUR consortium and their prototype implementation will promote their adoptions.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

An ambitious plan to connect the European and Russian power grids could bring a variety of benefits such as security and sustainability to both regions.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Europe has a well working electricity grid, but blackouts still occur for a variety of reasons, be they natural or man-originated. The EU has considered linking its power grid to that of Russia in order to create a powerful interconnected entity that can overcome power shortages and surges. This, however, requires sophisticated approaches for the monitoring, control and protection of such a grand electric system.

The EU-funded project 'Intelligent coordination of operation and emergency control of EU and Russian power grids' (ICOEUR) rose to this challenge, bringing together partners from both regions. They developed novel state estimators that European and Russian transmission system operators (TSOs) could use to examine the state of the electricity grids.

Based on wide area monitoring system (WAMS) technology and a central data concentrator, these solutions were successfully tested on a large scale. The system demonstrated that it could successfully measure any instability within large-scale power systems due to voltage deviations or inter-area electric oscillations. This was realised thanks to advanced new algorithms and more centralised data collection. A more detailed look at these efforts has also been outlined on the project http://www.icoeur.eu (website).

Overall, the project delivered tools to support the collaboration of TSOs in maintaining individual and general system stability, activating local protection systems when needed. In addition, the project team developed models of European and Russian transmission grids to evaluate the new tools and methods adopted to ensure optimal functioning.

Project results have been disseminated through journals, conferences and publications, as well as through stakeholder workshops in Europe and Russia. The project team has also devised an exploitation plan to facilitate adoption of the ICOEUR tools. When this happens, both Europe and Russia will have more powerful and steady electric grids that will minimise downtime and optimise the use of resources. This will contribute to both regions' energy sustainability and security needs.
