Continuing frequency deviation in the Continental European Power System originating in Serbia/Kosovo
Political solution urgently needed in addition to technical
The power deviations are originating from the control area called Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro (SMM block) and specifically Kosovo and Serbia.
The power deviations have led to a slight decrease in the electric frequency average.
This average frequency deviation, that has never happened in any similar way in the CE Power system, must cease. The missing energy amounts currently to 113 GWh. The question of who will compensate for this loss has to be answered.
The decrease in frequency average is affecting also those electric clocks that are steered by the frequency of the power system and not by a quartz crystal: they show currently a delay of close to six minutes.
ENTSO-E, the association of the European TSOs, is exploring all technical options to address the deviation issue with the concerned TSOs.
As there is also a political dimension with impact on the functioning of the electricity system, ENTSO-E is urging European and national governments and policy makers to take swift action. These actions need to address the political side of this issue, supporting ENTSO-E’s and the TSOs’ actions to deliver a technical solution.
