Network regulator on the basis of the PSIcontrol energy control system
Berlin, 3 June 2015 – The Austrian Power Grid AG (APG), the Austrian transmission grid operator headquartered in Vienna, has entrusted PSI AG with rebuilding a computer system for the secondary and tertiary control of the Austrian transmission grid.
APG is Austria’s control area manager and therefore responsible for the stable functioning of the electrical energy system. Amongst the cooperations arranged to date are a grid regulator cooperation with the ELES (Slovenia) control area as well as a cross-control-area procurement of primary power control. An inclusion in the International Grid Control Cooperation (IGCC – transmission grid operators from Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Belgium) has also already been implemented. Beyond that, in the future a cross-control-area activation of secondary power control and tertiary power control with Germany will be implemented.
