UCTE-IPS/UPS Feasibility Study finalised: Summary endorsed by study partners
The study analysing the feasibility of a possible synchronous coupling of the power systems of the IPS/UPS with the UCTE was successfully closed on 5 December. A public summary of the major findings and results was endorsed by the study partners during a closing event together with major stakeholders of the project. The final conclusions underline the overall complexity of a synchronous coupling taking into consideration both system security and market aspects. System coupling by HVDC back-to-back links is also considered as an alternative to achieve a coupling of IPS/UPS with the UCTE transmission system in a medium term perspective.
