C2 – Power system operation and control

Mission

To facilitate and promote the progress of engineering and the international exchange of information and knowledge in the field of system operation and control. To add value to this information and knowledge by means of synthesizing state-of-the-art practices and developing recommendations.

 

Scope

The scope of the Study Committee C2 covers the technical, human resource and institutional aspects and conditions for the secure and economic operation of power systems under security requirements against system disintegration, equipment damages and human injuries.

Areas of attention include:

• Control, monitoring and switching of equipment, management of ancillary services
(such as voltage control, frequency control), monitoring of operational limits and
actions to maintain network security and to avoid congestion (e.g. congestion
management). Reserves and emergency strategies, management of
disturbances, restoration and resilience enhancement strategies, interaction
between the system players. Use of PMU-based data (such e.g. WAMS,
WAMPS and WAMPACS), their integration within control centre
environment and its contribution to power system analysis and
security assessment functionalities.
• Developments and changes in the business of System Operators and
their integration into the evolving environment: energy transition impact,
changes in costumer behaviour, integration of new technologies,
management and operation of large-scale energy storage, operation
from pure AC to hybrid AC/DC systems, including crossborder
interconnection, and common and coordinated activities between
System Operators, between Transmission, Distribution and
service providers. Consequences of higher penetration of DG/RES
resources, increasing information exchange and controllability
coming from all voltage levels. Interaction with market players,
regulators, and service providers.
• Evaluation and benchmarking of the system performance in terms
of disturbance frequency, power interruptions, power quality,
operational and outage planning efficiency, both from the technical
and economical points of view.
• Requirements, methods, tools and performance indicators for
Control Centres and training of System Operators.
• Short-term planning and coordination of capacity calculation
and network security. Development and use of power system
analysis and security assessment functionalities within
operational planning and real-time supervision, supporting
system operators. Automation of processes and optimisation,
e.g. application of remedial actions.
