Our Services

For maximum grid security in Europe

We keep improving our service mindset – to grow with our customers and shareholders

We enable coordination across European borders

What we Provide

Customised service solutions

Our work is based on network codes drafted under the EU’s Third Energy Package and on the Clean Energy Package. They define the common standards and principles on the basis of which the RCCs and the TSOs cooperate.

In addition to the mandatory core services, we provide numerous additional services for our customers where required. In many cases, we also provide our customers with secure direct access to our databases as a reliable resource for their own calculations.

Our services and guidelines are to be expanded and optimised as required in the future, using a more detailed grid model and new security analyses methodologies.

We need to be ready to tackle the new energy sector requirements that inevitably are on their way. We look forward to it.

Services in operation

Grid
CGM – Common Grid Model
Ensures a common data model of the transmission grid for security coordination. Considers the entire European Electricity transmission system. Establishes the necessary calculation basis for all other services and relevant scenarios.
Outage
OPC – Outage Planning Coordination
Ensures Transmission assets are safely installed and maintained week-ahead and year-ahead coordination of scheduled outages of network elements. Detection of incompatible outage scenarios and recommendation of potential remedial actions.
Capacity
CCC – Coordinated Capacity Calculation
Ensures market is provided with transmission capacity. Identifies cross-border transmission capacities to be allocated to the market for different capacity calculation regions: Italy North, Core, Hansa. Iterative process on four-time horizon: Year-Ahead, Month-Ahead, Day-Ahead, IntraDay.
Security
CSA – Coordinated Security Analysis
Ensures secure transmission system after market operation. Identifies potential insecure network situations and recommends potential remedial actions to eliminate congestions and other security violations. Iterative process on two-time horizons: Day-Ahead, IntraDay, more than 100.000 calculations per year.
Adequacy
STA – Short Term Adequacy
Evaluates whether available generation can supply consumption week-ahead until day-ahead identification of lack of generation. Consideration of production availability, demand, transfer capacities and security limits.
Post Analysis
Carrying out post-operation and post-disturbances analyses and reporting.
Defence & restoration support
Supporting the consistency assessment of TSOs’ defence plans and restoration plans.

Comprehensive service portfolio

Analytics & Reporting Services

It is our aim to deliver services to the highest standard possible. We evaluate if design of a new or modified service meets the requirements and can be operated to the highest standard possible. We then discuss these results with our clients to form the basis for decisions on final design and operational requirements of new tasks assigned to us. Once implementation begins, the design, deployment and testing activities require multi-partner project management expertly run by TSCNET. We also take care of business intelligence and operational reporting and related analysis to measure the quality of our services. And of course we also perform the legally required implementation of regulatory and compliance reporting according to the Network Regulation (EU) 2017/1485, EU 2015/1222 or EU 2019/943 to external stakeholders such as ENTSO-E, Regulation Authorities and our clients.

We support Transmission System Operators (TSO) in securing a sustainable power system

Our service mindset is unique and through an End to End thinking paired with a solid ITIL approach we capture and deliver the best possible service to our partners and customers.
