Forecasts that are as accurate as possible are essential for helping grid operators meet the new legal requirements for managing grid congestion (Redispatch 2.0), which take effect on October 1, 2021. While redispatching was previously required only for conventional power generation systems with more than 10 megawatts of capacity, the new requirements will also apply to systems for generating renewable power as well as energy storage systems and cogeneration plants with more than 100 kilowatts of capacity. Predicted load profiles for generation plants and electrical devices will be used to prepare grid analyses that can help identify congestion early on, allowing for preemptive measures to be taken. Such an approach requires uniform standards for data exchange as well as automated, digital data delivery, which presents a significant challenge for smaller distribution system operators in particular. In order to develop solutions such as a common software program, German grid operators are collaborating as part of the nationwide project “Connect+.”
In this webinar, a grid operator will show how Redispatch 2.0 can be implemented in the distribution grid. The firm FGH GmbH will highlight how R&D services in the areas of electrical energy supply, systems technology, grid planning and operation, and the integration of renewable energies into the grid can be put into practice. The webinar will be moderated by Florian Gutekunst from TransnetBW GmbH, which operates the electricity transmission grid in the German state of Baden-Württemberg.
