Steering Group Strategy assists SOC in assessing infrastructure, regulatory or technological developments and their impact on operations and formulates proposals that correspond to the SOC objective of security, resilience and efficiency in the operation of the electricity grid. The main tasks of the group are the replacement of the Synchronous Zone Framework (SAFA) for the REGSO-E Regional Group Continental Europe and replaces the Multilateral Handbook Operation 2005. It develops the Synchronous Area Operation Agreement, in accordance with Article 118 of the Guideline on System Operation, one of the eight European network codes and guidelines, and also includes the necessary agreements between TSOs in continental Europe that are not bound by EU law. the study of the relevant frequency differences for each synchronous range; Groups within SOC There are currently four steering groups, one working group and two projects that report directly to SOC. Each group is assisted by our secretarial team. Learn more about the different groups below. Such a framework is based on the Network`s European codes and guidelines and their implementation, which implies the development of methods at regional or European level. It promotes the establishment of contractual agreements between all TSOs and the possible extension of their application by non-EU TSOs. A synchronous zone is a group of connected power networks operating under the same frequency. ENTSO-E has five synchronous zones: continental Europe, the Nordic region, the Baltic Sea region, the British region, Ireland and Northern Ireland. The region of continental Europe is the largest with 26 countries. Each synchronous zone is represented by a regional group under the REGSO-E System Operating Committee. SOC has five permanent regional groups based on synchronous zones (Continental Europe, Scandinavia, Baltic States, Great Britain and Ireland-Ireland).
The regional groups report on the operations of the Steering Group and are represented at each meeting of the Steering Group. As part of the Clean Energy Package, the risk prevention regulation for the PRP project is dealt with within the SOC. The main results of the RPR project are the methodology for identifying regional electricity crisis scenarios and the methodology for assessing short- and seasonal suitability. In addition to these two pan-European methods, crisis scenarios at regional level will also be part of the project. The operational framework of the Steering Group shall focus on the development, implementation and monitoring of an appropriate framework for the operation of the network for the European transmission networks, while ensuring sustainable development and management of changes to that framework according to the needs of security of supply, TSOs and users of the transmission network. . . .
