Internal meetings to make important decisions regarding UCs

Internal meetings to make important decisions regarding UCs

Partners from IMP, EMSS and SCC gathered together for an internal meeting in order to discuss about further implementations and development regarding UC12 “Emergency & Restoration -Over-Frequency Protection module” and UC19 “Emergency & Restoration -System Split module”.

The goal of UC12 is to replace individual controllers on generators, mimicking the response of the entire power system to over-frequency conditions and to ensure effective over-frequency protection, while the goal of UC19 is automatic detection and faster coordination during disturbances, ensuring faster and more efficient crisis response.

The main topic for UC12 was planning the future activities and dynamic of work. Also, some details were agreed about testing. Regarding the UC19, discussion was about needed inputs (frequency from PMU and topology) for detection of system split and improvements of coordination platform for a better signalization of smart notifications. Furthermore, it was agreed that the structure of notifications in some steps of coordination should be modified in order to be aligned with the business process.

Outcomes of this meeting will be reflected in future R²D² development.

Impact assessment regarding UC “Validation of network model integrity”

Impact assessment regarding UC “Validation of network model integrity”

During the R²D² plenary meeting in Ljubljana, representatives of GUARD (Priit Anton and Mihkel Väljaots), EMSS (SrđanSubotić) and SCC (Dušan Prešić) took the opportunity to organise a side meeting to discuss future demonstration activities and impact assessment regarding UC “Validation of network model integrity”.

The goal of this UC is to increase cyber security and maintain network model integrity by using KSI Blockchain technology to create a signature file – a unique cryptographic proof that protects the integrity, signing time and signing identity of the network model so that TSOs and RCCs could be sure that some third actor (or error) did not change metadata of the network model during its transfer of storage.

The meeting was very fruitful since two demonstration scenarios (green and red) are sketched. Also, several attack points are detected based on the current business process that is implemented on the TSO and RCC side regarding the processing of network models.

Finally, some potential financial impacts were discussed during the meeting, including reputational impact for TSOs or RCCs in case of network model integrity issues.

The outcomes of this meeting will be reflected in future R²D² deliverables.
