Event description
MIGRATE is a TSO-led project under the European H2020 framework. SP Energy Networks led Work Package 2 (WAM, Protection and Control)

About this Event

SP Energy Networks extend an invitation for you to join us at Scottish Power HQ, Glasgow on the 29th of October, for a workshop which will discuss MIGRATE (WP2) project outcomes, their impact for UK networks and on how lessons from this project can be implemented and developed.

In the UK, we are all aware that there is a growing concern about the reliability of the transmission system due to the closure of ageing synchronous generation and the growing penetration of renewable technology. MIGRATE is the only TSO-led project under the European H2020 framework, supported by academics and industrial partners, which has investigated a number of key factors which have stemmed from a transition to the low carbon network and the high penetration of power electronics including the impact on stability, protection and harmonics in a network with a high penetration of power electronics. In particularly, MIGRATE is hoping to provide a useful engineering enabler for a zero carbon transmission network. SP Energy Networks has led Work Package 2 (WP2, Wide Area Monitoring, Protection and Control) as part of the project consortium.

Specifically, MIGRATE (WP2) has been investigating how we can monitor and forecast key performance indictors (KPIs) that will indicate the system stability. The two factors we have been studying has been area inertia and short circuit capacity (or grid strength), where we have produced tools to monitor and forecast these KPIs. In addition, we have deployed the world first live trial of Wide Area Monitoring, Protection and Control in the Icelandic network to demonstrate solutions which can maintain stability in low inertia networks. This scheme has been trialled in Iceland, supported by GE.

This workshop will invite the key stakeholders and provide an overview of the work undertaken in area inertia and system stability, and in the deployment of WAMPC in a low inertia network. It will also be a platform to have a focused discussion around how the MIGRATE project can facilitate the future of UK networks, with a view from academia and from the industry leading an open conversation about what’s next for the UK networks.

A draft agenda can be found below:

9:00 - Registration with tea/coffee
