CIGRE B5 Webinars 25 juni, 10 & 17 september

Beste CIGRE leden,
 
Wij, studiecomité CIGRE B5 Nederland, missen jullie. Jaren aan een stuk hebben we jullie ontmoet tijdens onze jaarlijkse themadagen. Binnen ons vakgebied is er altijd wel wat te melden, en zijn er nieuwe ontwikkelingen of inzichten. Het is geweldig om daar met elkaar van gedachten over te wisselen. 

Daarom organiseren wij een drietal compacte webinars van 60 minuten op vrijdag 25 juni, 10 september en 17 september van 11:00 tot 12:00 uur. 

De ontwikkelingen gaan door. Denk aan de zaken omtrent transportschaarste, die ook significante invloed hebben op beveiliging en automatisering. Sterker nog: beveiliging en automatisering creëren mogelijkheden! Tevens zijn er ontwikkelingen op het gebied van ‘digital substations’, nieuwe beveiligingsprincipes zoals overbelastingsbeveiliging en wordt er binnen de wetenschappelijke wereld veel werk verzet.

Hieronder volgt het programma. Plaats de webinars in je agenda samen met de link. Aanmelden is niet nodig. 
 
Webinar 1: Overbelasting beveiliging, het nieuwe normaal?
Datum: vrijdag 25 juni van 11:00 tot 12:00 uur.
Link: Teams

In dit webinar word je meegenomen in de impact van transportschaarste op beveiliging en automatisering. Gaan we nu nieuwe manieren van slim automatiseren en anders beveiligen toepassen? Je hoort het vanuit drie ervaringsdeskundigen! Met medewerking van: Gert Aanhanen, TenneT, Stefan Lamboo & Michael van Leeuwen, Alliander en Robert van der Peet, Stedin.


Webinar 2: Top-Down engineering, gaat het er nu echt van komen?
Datum: vrijdag 10 september van 11:00 tot 12:00 uur. 
Link: Teams

De focus ligt op het leveranciers onafhankelijk engineeren middels de Helinks STS Top-Down engineering tool, welke voor het veldvervaningsprogramma van TenneT is gebruikt. Je wordt meegenomen in de configuratie workflow, vanaf het definiëren van een systeem (Top) tot het toepassen van verschillende IED’s om de functies uit te voeren (Down). De voor- en nadelen van deze manier van werken komen aan de orde. Ook leer je hier meer over substation configuration description (SCD) bestanden en hoe de IEC 60870-5-104 adressen hier een plaatsje in krijgen. De voordelen van een SCD waarin heel veel configuratiedata staat spaart veel tijd uit tijdens het engineeringsproces, maar zorgt ook dat typefouten verleden tijd zijn.
 
In dit webinar krijg je uit de eerste hand praktische ervaringen van Sindhuja Vijayaraghavan, Croonwolter&dros omtrent IEC 61850 Top-Down engineering mee. Een unieke kans!

Webinar 3: Update vanuit PSPC TU Delft
Datum: vrijdag 17 september van 11:00 tot 12:00 uur. 
Link: Teams

Marjan Popov, TU Delft neemt je mee in de uitkomsten van diverse onderzoeken die lopen binnen het Power System Protection Centre. Hij en zijn studenten presenteren noviteiten vanuit de wetenschappelijke wereld. 

Themadag 2022 
Wij hopen in april 2022 een themadag als vanouds te kunnen organiseren. Zou jij ook graag wat willen vertellen, of heb je suggesties voor een bepaald onderwerp? Of misschien heb je wel een bijzondere situatie meegemaakt en zou je daar wat over willen vertellen? Graag! Mail dan naar rene.troost@stedin.net

Vriendelijke groeten,
Studiecomité CIGRE B5 Nederland

CIGRE C0 Meeting – System impacts of active prosumers & aggregation on 8 June

Register: send an email to danny.klaar@tennet.eu.

Prosumers, active distribution systems, local flexibility, independent aggregators, distributed resources, local energy communities, peer-to-peer trading, these are some of the important buzz words in our industry today. The European Clean Energy Package has introduced rules aiming to accommodate such developments and these rules are now being implemented in the new Dutch energy act.


In this CIGRE C0 Meeting, we will discuss the system impacts of these developments. The meeting will be kicked off with two short presentations. One presentation by Ronald Jansen, senior policy officer at the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate). He has been involved in the drafting of the new Dutch energy act. Ronald will explain what legal changes will be made to accommodate the new developments. The 2nd presentation will be given by Michiel Dorresteijn (senior consultant at Energy21). He has worked with Stedin on a market model (Layered Energy System) that aims to facilitate prosumers and local energy communities.


After that, the topics will be elaborated in four parallel subgroups with active participation from all attendees. Each group will get specific questions to address.
Finally, the results will be discussed in a plenary session.


CIGRE C0 is the cooperation of the Dutch CIGRE national committees C1, C2, C5 and C6. These four Study Committees focus on the system aspects of large power systems.

Programme

15:00: Start

  • Introduction by the Chair: Paul Giesbertz (Statkraft)
  • Update on recent CIGRE developments: Danny Klaar (TenneT)
  • Presentation: The new energy act; by Ronald Jansen (Ministry EZK) (in Dutch)
  • Presentation: Layered energy system pilots solving distribution grid issues; by Michiel Dorresteijn (Energy21)

    16 :00 : Break-out sessions
  • Sub-group 1 System Planning. Chair: Maksym Semenyuk (DNV)
    o What is the impact of active prosumers on system planning? Are new models and scenarios needed? How can TSOs/DSOs be better facilitated in their decision making process?
  • Sub-group 2: System Operation. Chair: Danny Klaar (TenneT)
    o Can distributed resources be used for congestion management? Can existing congestion management practices for the transmission grid be applied to distribution grids? Can distributed resources be used for system balancing without DSO involvement? Are new forms of cooperation between TSOs and DSOs needed?
  • Sub-group: 3: Markets and regulations. Chair Thijs Slot (DNV)
    o Which market arrangements and regulations are required to enable the transition? Does the new Dutch Energy Act enable these developments? Given these conditions: Which innovate business models are most promising? Does the new Dutch Energy Act sufficiently enable these business models? Are there business models that would be needed/ useful (from system perspective) but that are not enabled with this new Act? What could/ needs to change? More specific: How can distributed resources be used for congestion management without distorting the functioning of the market? Will the independent aggregator have a real added value or will retail suppliers offer similar services?
  • Sub-group 4: Technologies and digitalisation. Chair Irina Melnik (Alliander)
    o Are new platforms needed and for which functions? Are coordination tools needed for the use of distributed resources? Which configurations for e-mobility and charging are promising? What are the impacts of digitalisation on cyber security and are processes becoming too dependent on availability of platforms?

    16h30: Conclusions
  • Presentation of main findings of each sub-group
  • Plenary session

    17:00: Closure

Abstracts

‘Lessons learnt from the COVID-19 Pandemic: How Resilient Are We?’ – The Covid-19 pandemic has posed unprecedented challenges to our power networks, making us rethink and re-evaluate our understanding of power grid resilience. In this talk, Matthias Noebels and Mathaios Panteli will share their experiences on understanding, defining and assessing power grid resilience, highlighting the need to consider organisational resilience during unexpected events like pandemics. They will also present a data-driven resilience assessment of the UK electricity network during the Covid-19 pandemic using publicly available outage data from UK distribution network operators, shedding light on how resilient we really are to cope with severe network stresses and shocks.

‘Impact of COVID on electrical power system and the organisation of TenneT’ – The COVID-19 Pandemic had several significant effects on the Electrical Power system and the TSO in Europe. The presentation will give an overview of these effects and the mitigating measures that the TSO’s applied. It will explain the organisational measures and the coordination between the TSO’s and within the TSO.
