July 2008 - PEGASE for an integrated security analysis and control of the European Transmission Network

pic23_M_logo_pegase_small.pngThe PEGASE project was launched in July 2008 by a consortium of 21 Partners including Transmission System Operators (TSOs), expert companies and leading research centres in power system analysis and applied mathematics, with the coordination of Tractebel Engineering.

PEGASE is a four year collaborative project  co-funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme dealing with the High and Extra High Voltage transmission and sub-transmission networks in Europe.
Its overall objectives are to define the most appropriate state estimation, optimization and simulation frameworks for the European Transmission Network (designated as ETN). It will also consider their performance and dataflow requirements to achieve an integrated security analysis and control of the ETN.
The heart of PEGASE project involves the development of advanced algorithms and prototype software and the demonstration of the feasibility of real-time state estimation (SE), multi purpose constrained optimization (OPF) and time domain simulation of very large models of the ETN, taking into account its operation by multiple TSOs.
EUROSTAGSMART FLOW (in particular the optimum powerflow) and FAST will dramatically benefit from the advanced algorithms development of the project.
