Giving TSOs Unique Insights
GridMetrix® enables TSOs to move from increasingly inaccurate inertia models to real-time, direct inertia measurements.
As we move rapidly towards renewables 2.0, this real-time visibility of critical network conditions will empower TSOs to make key commercial and operational decisions faster, safer and more cost-effectively.
Reactive, together with our partners, National Grid ESO and Tokyo Electric Power Company, are setting the global power grid inertia standards for the next generation of system stability management.
“As the penetration of wind and solar on the system increases, operation of the system becomes significantly more complex. The power system is being operated closer to its known limits more frequently, with increasingly variable and uncertain supply and demand, and declines in system strength and inertia”
“Zero carbon operation of the electricity system means a fundamental change to how our system was designed to operate; integrating newer technologies right across the system… using new smart digital systems to manage and control the system in real-time.”
“Innovation and digitization, required to cope with the increased complexity of the system, are one of the two enabling factors of our strategy and we plan to devote around EUR 900 million to these initiatives…this represents a paradigm shift: from Watts to Bytes.”
