Ukrenergo together with Elia Grid International will introduce European dispatching principles

Ukrenergo signed an agreement with Elia Grid International on the provision of advisory services on restructuring (reengineering) of the dispatch function and the successful integration of the Ukrainian energy system into ENTSO-E.  It is reported by the press service of Ukrenergo.

Elia Grid International specialists will analyze the impact of the new market model on the power system of Ukraine, propose a project of internal business processes and a roadmap for their implementation in accordance with ENTSO-E standards.

Consultative support is also provided in adapting the existing rules, codes and instructions of the Ukrainian united energy system to the relevant ENTSO-E documents and regulations.  As part of the agreement, a number of studies will be conducted, including on the capacity of interconnectors, data exchange between the UES of Ukraine and ENTSO-E.  This is important for the correct operation of power systems in the synchronous mode of power systems in the future.

The project is an integral part of the implementation of the Second Power Transmission Project, funded by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development.  The project cost is almost 812 thousand euros.  The deadline for the provision of services is the end of 2020.

In addition, within the framework of cooperation, from October it is planned to conduct practical training with the participation of specialists from the dispatching area of Ukrenergo in the national and regional dispatch centers of Elia Grid International and in the regional coordination center Coreso/TSCnet (Brussels).

The introduction of European standards and principles in power management will allow the dispatch function of Ukrenergo to be brought to high standards of efficiency and reliability.  As a result, this will provide an opportunity to effectively and safely integrate the power system of Ukraine into ENTSO-E.
