ENTSO-E releases draft Load-Frequency Control and Reserves Network Code

(PresseBox) (Brussels, ) In preparation for the first public stakeholder workshop on the Load-Frequency Control and Reserves Network Code (LFC&R NC), taking place on 12 July 2012 in Brussels, ENTSO-E releases a draft LFC&R NC. Interested stakeholders are reminded to register for the workshop by 10 July.

The LFC&R NC focuses on frequency quality criteria, frequency control structure, frequency containment reserves, frequency restoration reserves, replacement reserves, exchange of reserves and synchronous time control. These LFC&R NC provisions provide the basis for the power system to function with a satisfactory level of security and quality of supply, as well as efficient utilization of infrastructure and resources.

In preparation for the workshop, ENTSO-E also finalized its Report on Operational Reserves. The report analyses the three pan-European harmonized processes of frequency containment, frequency restoration and replacement. The report is a building document for the draft LFC&R network code.

The ENTSO-E workshop will address the scope and the first version of the network code (not yet in legal format) in order to allow for early stakeholder input, discussion and a Q&A session and is an opportunity for DSOs, industrial electricity consumers, generators, energy traders and turbine suppliers to provide feedback on the current status of the network code.

The workshop will take place on

12 July, 13h00 - 17h00
ENTSO-E, Avenue de Cortenbergh 100
1000 Brussels, Belgium

Stakeholders are reminded to register for the workshop via email, by indicating their full names, contact details and organization to Ms Pilar Munoz-Elena (Pilar.Munoz-Elena@entsoe.eu), no later than 10 July 2012.

The European Commission officially invited ENTSO-E to start formally drafting the LFC&R NC on 24 February 2012. The code must be in line with ACER's Framework Guidelines on Electricity System Operation and submitted to ACER by 1 July 2013.
