The EuroPan Demo is the subject of WP7  with the goal to produce improved system operation planning/forecasting and analysis tools – on the inter-TSO level. The effort starts from the capability of the FARCROSS partners to derive accurate weather forecasting at a high level of spatial resolution, such that models of RES generation and load forecasting reach high accuracy results. These model-predictions of power are then fed as input to power flow analysis tools to support TSO operation and cross border collaboration.

Early on, the FARCROSS partners have teamed-up to start the system design and the analysis of requirements, while working in parallel on the technical implementation and the data needed for the model parameter tuning and simulation results’ validation.

The weather forecasting results are already under comparison with existing historic data – several months ahead of schedule – to determine the appropriate model parametrization for given geographic idiosyncrasies. Additional data are collected from the responsible TSOs on specific Points of Interest to trim the model parameters on the areas with a real-life interest.

LineVision, Inc. recently announced its expansion into Europe and a partnership with the European Commission-funded FARCROSS consortium. The company will work with four FARCROSS utility participants in Hungary, Greece, Slovenia, and Austria to deploy advanced sensors and analytics for transmission line monitoring.

FARCROSS synopses submission to the Conference of the South East European Regional Council of CIGRE, SEERC, in Vienna (16-19 June 2020)  has been accepted. Therefore the full paper is now being prepared for submission in late February, with the final notification to be received in late April regarding FARCROSS registration at the conference.
