R&D NESTER and LNEG presented the project OptiGRID outcomes, on the 20th of September.
Within this project, an operational tool that allows assessing the transmission capacity of electric lines (OptiRES.line) was developed. OptiRES.line models the behaviour of lines, in particular near or at congestion, by computing the dynamic line rating ampacities feeding an optimal power flow.
The operation of the tool was demonstrated at this session, by applying it to three case studies, in Portugal. Two of these involve regional grids presenting high production levels of, respectively, wind and solar energy and the third involve the Portuguese international lines allowing to assess the degree of reduction in the conditions leading to market splitting, in MIBEL.
Project OptiGRID was partly financed by FCT, PTDC/EEI-EEE/31711/2017
