The Croatian-Slovenian smartgrid project SINCRO.GRID is carried out by the two TSCNET shareholders ELES, the transmission system operator (TSO) from Slovenia, and HOPS from Croatia. The cross-border initiative aims at optimising the efficiency of the Croatian and Slovenian electricity transmission grids through the application of advanced technologies and innovative data processing methods. SINCRO.GRID has been awarded the status of Project of Common Interest (PCI) by the European Commission under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme.
On behalf of SINCRO.GID, HOPS has signed a contract with KONČAR-KET, the Croatian provider of engineering services for power generation, transmission or distribution facilities. The contract comes with the rather unwieldy title: “Process technical systems for the voltage and reactive power regulation support of the EES and dynamic monitoring of the transmission line load within the SINCRO.GRID project”, but what it’s all about is to increase the quality and capacity of the power system through the use of advanced process technical systems and algorithms. This will also promote the integration of the renewables and increase the security of customer supply.
