Resilience: a comparison between (top-level) international experiences

Resilience: a comparison between (top-level) international experiences

RSE’s research into power systems maintains an excellent scientific reputation, which makes it one of the cutting edge global centres capable of providing solutions to complex problems affecting interconnected power systems as well as of handling critical issues, as confirmed by three recently held/upcoming events in Dublin (June 11-15), Idaho (June 24-28) and Portland (August 5-9)

Over the last two to three years RSE has contributed to raising the awareness of and the attention on power systems’ resilience in our country.

Indeed, RSE has kept investigating into resilience on a request by institutions as well as in the framework of a close cooperation with power systems operators aimed at handling the issues caused by widespread extreme weather events of unexpected severity and frequency.

Yet, the problem is not limited to our country: it directly impacts power systems in all the most advanced economies of the world, and not just them: that’s why the international comparison of experiences, the exchange of information on the topic and their dissemination are strategic moments. RSE can rightly say – with a touch of well-deserved pride- that the work presented at a variety of symposia raised great interest followed by many requests for in-depth information. Here are three top events that provide an excellent example.

The many transmission systems operators attending the Power Systems Computation Conference in Dublin (June 11-15) expressed special appreciation for RSE (and TERNA) presentation titled The consequences on the Italian power systems of formation and accretion of wet-snow sleeves on conductors: investigating possible methods for passive mitigation (conductor coatings) and active mitigation (re-dispatching).

Another key event - PMAPS 2018 (Probabilistic Methods: Practical Approaches for Managing Risk and Uncertainty in the Electric Power Industry) – was held in Boise, Idaho from the 24th to the 28th of June. In the framework of the I-Tesla European project, RSE developed specific cascading calculation instruments to provide an estimate of forecast uncertainty for renewables; these instruments have been later incorporated into the network code of French grid operator RTE. The story of this huge achievement was told right at PMAPS 2018.

Furthermore, while waiting for the end-of-the month European big event (Paris CIGRE), the general meeting of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers) will be held on the other side of the Ocean from the 5th to the 9th of August.

During the PES (Power & Energy Society) meeting of the association known among professionals as “I triple E” RSE will present its work on the possibility of handling distributed load to enable grid frequency adjustment.

RSE’s research into power systems, therefore, maintains its strong scientific reputation, making it one of the cutting edge global centres capable of providing solutions to complex problems affecting interconnected power systems as well as of handling critical issues.
