Testing of the Enhanced Frequency Control Capability (EFCC) Scheme: Part 2 - Wide Area Mode Tests

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This report presents the methods and results relating to tests conducted at the Power Networks Demonstration Centre (PNDC) at the University of Strathclyde (UoS) concerned with investigating and validating the performance and benefits of the Enhanced Frequency Control Capability (EFCC) scheme. This work is part of the EFCC project led by National Grid (NG) under Ofgem’s Network Innovation Competition (NIC) funding framework. This report is Part 2 of a set of total 3 reports. The tests presented in this report focus on the evaluation of the performance of the EFCC scheme when operating in its wide-area mode, where all communication links are enabled and possess sufficiently good quality. The other two reports focus on the testing of the EFCC scheme’s local operational mode (Part1) and upon the evaluation of the impact of communication performance on the wide-area operation of the scheme (Part 3).
