To maintain stability within the UCTE-grid, European TSOs are responsible for maintaining a balance between generation, import, consumption and export in their control zones. This responsibility is partly transferred to BRPs which are market participants responsible for the balance between injections and off-takes in their perimeter. With imbalance fees working as incentive to avoid imbalances, BRPs will forecast, schedule and nominate their positions to the TSO before gate closure. With rising…

Asymmetric reserve power delivered by large wind power plants
A stable and secure operation of the electricity grid is mainly achieved by contracting power generators to ancillary services in addition to their main commercial product, active power. Electricity
Business case assessment of balancing large scale PV with flexible CHP
In a situation where the share of less predictable electricity production from renewable energy sources (like solar energy) in the overall electricity production-mix increases, the electricity system
Optimizing the use of flexible residential demand for balancing wind power
TLDR
An optimization model is developed which aims to minimize wind power imbalances by means of combining different control options: thermal generators re-dispatch, intra-day market trading and shifting flexible residential demand.
IMPACT OF WIND POWER INTEGRATION ON BELGIAN POWER RESERVE REQUIREMENTS
As part of the European energy policy goals of sustainability, security of supply and improved competitiveness, the share of Renewable Energy Sources for Electricity (RES-E) is rapidly increasing.
Sizing and Allocation of Operating Reserves following Wind Power Integration (Dimensioneren en toewijzen van operationele reserves met het oog op de integratie van windenergie)
As part of the European policy goals aiming towards a sustainable energy supply, the share of renewable energy sources in the electricity system is increasing. The two technologies driving this
