PhD Thesis “Generating grid equivalents for different voltage level to be applied in an integrated power system planning and operation tool”
The overall aim of the work is to develop a detailed approach for providing and delivering grid equivalents covering all voltage levels to be incorporated in an integrated power system operation planning and semi-dynamic simulation environment. In this context integrated means both all network levels and building a bridge between static, long-term planning and operational issues by introducing controllers in the operation planning. For the related grid equivalents a two-step approach is foreseen:
1. Development of grid equivalent models based on different use cases and requirements. 2. Interactive update and improvement of the grid equivalent models based on the experiences in both the simulation tool design and validation. In particular for lower voltage levels it is required to have available an approach to characterize networks as well as to generate simplified grid equivalents, since it is not possible to consider all existing networks (including full models) in an integrated planning tool.
