Today, Austrian born Marlene Petz and Philipp Kmeth from TSCNET Services were guests of the transmission system operator (TSO) APG at the occasional information exchange forum “APG grid circle” in Vienna, Austria. Both of them came from APG when they started to work at TSCNET, the TSC TSOs – Joint Office at that time, in the mid of 2013. They did not only introduce the TSO Security Cooperation (TSC) and TSCNET Services, but also provided insight into their daily work, including working principles, the consistent working group structure, and the complex TSC processes moderated by the operators.
The presentation was followed by an animated discussion with the audience about the advantages for APG as a member of TSC and one of TSCNET’s shareholders. Among the issues raised were the challenges APG faces as a centrally located TSO in the european transmission grid and that have to be met in close coordination between all the neighbouring TSOs involved. The conversation also covered APG’s role as one of the catalysers in the TSC community for developing services and processes.
