The Network Development Plan (NEP) 2017 considers generation management at all voltage levels. The representation and evaluation of generation management represents an important element in the coming network planning in order to avoid excess capacity in the network.
For this purpose, E-Bridge assists the four German transmission network operators in order to integrate generation management in the investigations leading up to the NEP 2017. The representation of generation management from distribution network operators follows the transmission network planning based on the methodology applied in the BMWi’s (Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy) distribution network study. This study modelled and investigated a range of distribution networks, at different voltage levels and with different topologies and supply functionalities, in relation to the appropriateness of integrating generation management in network dimensioning. Regarding transmission network planning, emphasis was placed on identifying distribution networks where the curtailment of RE-generation assets should be considered for network planning at the different network levels.
E-Bridge built upon this to further develop the methodology for the representation of generation management and has delivered a key input for the investigations leading up to the NEP 2017.
The WAPP had to be developed by the four German transmission system operators (TSOs) under great time pressure.
