Our key tasks

We are primarily tasked with providing power transmission services, system services and facilitating the energy market. Our core tasks follow from our appointment as grid operator under the Dutch 'Elektriciteitswet' (E-wet) and the German 'Energiewirtschaftsgesetz' (EnWG).

MIGRATE Project

MIGRATE stands for Massive InteGRATion of power Electronic devices

Proliferation of power electronics into the grid:

Mitigation of power stability issues & power quality disturbances; solutions for a 100% PE network

The MIGRATE consortium is pleased to invite the power system community to discuss some preliminary results achieved by the project, focused on:

  • Allowing an increased penetration of power electronics in today’s grid through mitigation strategies tackling power stability issues;
  • Concepts and solutions for a network with 100% power electronics;
  • Mitigation measures to deal with power quality disturbances. 

The 90 mn presentation will be followed by a collective discussion and a cocktail.
