GARPUR Workshop towards DSOs, Power generators and Technology providers. 7th Oct 2014, Brussels


GARPUR projects invites DSOs, Power generators and Technology providers towards a dedicated Workshop, the 7th October 2014 in ENTSO-E premises in Brussels.


The aim of the GARPUR project is to design and evaluate new power system reliability criteria. If successful, these criteria could be progressively implemented at the pan-European level, optimally balancing reliability and costs. Indeed, the increasing uncertainty caused by (among others) the massive integration of intermittent generation calls for the use of probabilistic reliability criteria to supplement and enhance the pure preventive N-1 criterion.

The whole electricity value chain will be impacted by GARPUR:

  • Distribution System Operators (DSOs), because of the growing cooperation needed between distribution and transmission levels to ensure the reliability of the whole power system,
  • Power generators, including both thermal and renewable producers, because of the impact of reliability management on their production and their potential involvement in corrective control,
  • Technology providers, because the data they can provide and the type of sensors and software they may design are crucial to determine probabilities of contingencies and failure of corrective control. The possible new reliability criteria and methods might require new products in the future.

Why participating to the first GARPUR workshop towards electricity market stakeholders?

By participating in the 7 October workshop, representatives of DSOs, power generators and technology providers will have the opportunity to get an overview of the GARPUR project and to assess how their organizations will be impacted by the GARPUR activities and expected results.
