The purpose of the iTESLA project is to develop a toolbox which will support the future operation of the pan-European electricity transmission network. This toolbox shall bring forward a major innovation: carry out operational dynamic simulations in the frame of a full probabilistic approach, thus going further that the current “N-1” approach and optimizing the transit capacities of the grid at different spatial (national, regional, Pan-European) and time (two-days ahead, day-ahead, intra-day, real-time) scales.
The iTesla project is lead by RTE (the French TSO). The total iTesla budget is M€ 19.5. DTUs total budget is M€ 1.1.
The main roles of DTU in iTesla are
- Work Package Leader of WP6: Defence and Restoration (Poul Sørensen)
- PhD in Integration of wind power and other renewables in power system defence plans (Kaushik Das, see related projects)
- Task Leader for Task 3.4. Aggregated dynamic models of variable generation sources (PV and Wind farms) and loads.
