European TSOs PowerFactory User Group Meeting
The 2018 European TSOs PowerFactory User Group Meeting took place in on September 18th and 19th. Delegates from sixteen companies were welcomed at Gomaringen for a varied agenda, including presentations both from DIgSILENT and from several of the TSO participants.
Day 1 started with three short presentations on CGMES, a topic of ongoing interest to Transmission Operators, and continued with presentation of two recent major developments in PowerFactory, Protection Audit and Probabilistic Analysis, and an early view of the Market Simulation module which is being developed for PowerFactory 2019. The day was completed by a visit to Kloster Bebenhausen in Tübingen, and dinner.
Day 2 continued the theme of PowerFactory 2019 developments with a demonstration of the new Co-Simulation functionality, and the presentation of a Dynamic Network Reduction project, together with a range of presentations by TSO participants about their own PowerFactory applications, providing an insight into the diversity of use cases and business processes supported by PowerFactory.
In the afternoon, DIgSILENT gave a preview of the main new features to be expected in PowerFactory 2019, and the day was completed by a session where participants had the chance to present their own wishes and proposals for future developments.
Besides all the agenda sessions, participants took the opportunity to have many discussions with their fellow system-operators and with DIgSILENT.
We’d like to thank all those who took part and whose engagement made for a very interesting and rewarding two days, and we look forward to welcoming you all again in two years’ time!
