  1. 1. A hydropower perspective on flexibility demand and grid frequency control

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Uppsala universitet

    Author : Linn Saarinen; Urban Lundin; Bengt Carlsson; Per Norrlund; Evert Agneholm; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hydropower; frequency control; balancing; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : The production and consumption of electricity on the power grid has to balance at all times. Slow balancing, over days and weeks, is governed by the electricity market and carried out through production planning.  Fast balancing, within the operational hour, is carried out by hydropower plants operating in frequency control mode.
