Statnett's Research, Development and Innovation Conference will take place on 25th of October 2022, at Meet Ullevål in Oslo, Norway.

At the conference, Statnett will present an extract of our most relevant research and development projects,and together with our Scandinavian TSO partners, provide an insight into important Nordic research in the future.

Through the conference, we will also discuss challenges towards 2050 – and how we best can develop and manage our common energy system.

The target group is invited representatives from TSOs, DSOs, other energy companies,public authorities, industry representatives, universities and research institutes.

 

Conference themes:

Increased capacity and utilization of the transmission grid

Consumption growth requires, among other things, increased transfer capacity in the grid. Through asset monitoring, we can both utilize existing capacity better and increase the lifespan of our existing resources. At the same time, upgrades and construction of new assets are required to increase capacity. These measures must be implemented with secure, sustainable and cost-effective technologies.

 

Automatic control in the transmission grid

The development of new renewable and highly variable energy production increases the requirements for observability, monitoring and control. Key processes and control systems must be automated to be able to respond within the shorter timeframes expected in the future grid. The use of real-time data cause higher data and information volumes, and requires improved data quality, integrity checks and higher security. We work with methods, systems and techniques for improved system control and transmission system utilization.

 

The energy system of the future

Electrification and emission reduction will change the Norwegian and Nordic energy system from now until 2050 and beyond. Increased infeed of renewable energy through converters will reduce the stability of the power system. To maintain stability, major changes are required in the design of how the power system is controlled, such as real-time monitoring with high sampling frequency and extensive use of automatic controls. New types of system services must be developed and closer integration with end-user flexibility is required.
