Supporting Energy Transition in Transmission Systems: An Operator’s Experience Using Electromagnetic Transient Simulation
The electric power industry is faced with the challenges of mitigating climate change, maintaining low electricity prices, and satisfying high reliability requirements for power supply. The increased application of power electronics devices is the inevitable result of the changes being experienced by the system. Careful analysis is required to install and operate power electronics devices. This article describes the use of electromagnetic transient (EMT) simulation on the French transmission grid to meet these new challenges in the context of energy transition.

With Europe dedicated to limiting climate change and greenhouse gas emissions, large shares of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) are being integrated in the national grids, phasing out conventional generation. The new challenges arising from the energy transition will require a better coordination between neighboring system operators to maintain system security. To this end, this paper studies the benefit of exchanging primary frequency reserves between asynchronous areas using the Supplementary Power Control (SPC) functionality of High-Voltage Direct-Current (HVDC) lines.
