Verbundvorhaben: MODEX-Net

Modellvergleich von Stromnetzmodellen im europäischen Kontext, Teilvorhaben: Das Modell MILES

The integration of renewable energies into the energy system while maintaining a high level of security of supply requires an efficient European transmission grid. For this reason, detailed grid modeling is becoming increasingly important. Among the existing methodological approaches to transmission grid modeling, a wide range has developed over the last few years, which can lead to divergent or even contradictory model results. The overall goal of the research project MODEX-Net is to compare existing transmission grid models that represent both the national and the European transmission grid. By means of model experiments, the differences between the models will be identified and analyzed. This includes a comparison of the methodological principles, the applied model topologies and the data used in the participating transmission grid models. Special attention will be paid to the role of supply and demand side flexibilities. On the basis of the knowledge gained, proposals for the further development of transmission grid models will be derived in order to further increase their significance for energy system transformation.
