Peru’s system operator, Comité de Operación Económica del Sistema Interconectado Nacional (COES), is embarking on a shift to higher wind and solar energy penetrations in its power system. As its power system undergoes these transformative changes, advanced methods and tools will be required in the COES transmission monitoring and control centers.
To support COES with identifying solutions to these challenges, the Global Power System Transformation (G-PST) Consortium’s System Operator Technical Support Pillar (Pillar 2) worked alongside the COES team to develop a set of possible recommended investment priorities to adapt to more variable generation, as well as shifting energy demand profiles through electrification and increased growth rates. The result of this work offers a comprehensive approach for the implementation of best-in-class structure in all areas of control center operation, informed by high-level assessment of COES functional and capability model.
In this webinar, experts from COES and G-PST’s Core Team partner organization, the Electric Power Research Institute, will outline the road map and share insights about the optimal approaches for control center improvements that COES is considering to meet the demands of their future power system. The road map is structured in five key areas: architecture, data, control center tools, human factors, and buildings and hardware, with eleven key pillars of innovation within each area.
