Distribution system operators

Generation and load forecasts of power grids

Since last year, all European transmission system operators have been obliged to provide generation and load data according to the Generation and Load Data Provision Methodology (GLDPM) for a pan-European network model. The aim of the procedure is a transparent, pan-European overview of the capacities of the European electricity grid down to the last detail level of the individual electricity generator. The respective distribution grid operators are responsible for the data collection of the generation and load data as well as their forecasts. 

The common grid model is intended to show the changes in the high-voltage or high-voltage grid in order to make the resulting effects on other grids easier and more reliable to identify. Together with and for networks BW, SANDY developed the corresponding forecast models and made the 24/7 operational data available.  In order to meet the European requirements of a standardized grid model for the calculation of power grid capacity, the „Generation and load data provision methodology“ (GLDPM), distribution system operators are required to provide a daily forecast of the grid status in order to pass it on to the transmission system operator. To ensure forecast quality, both changes in the grid switching state as well as grid topologies must be taken into account. Furthermore, the forecast results must be reproducible
