Nuclear power plant and grid interaction 2021

The Grid interference on Nuclear power plant Operations, GINO, annual seminar is the meeting place for discussions on R&D on the interaction between the nuclear power plant, TSO and regulator.

Join the GINO annual webinar to get information about the latest results from projects in the program:

  • Impact on the nuclear power plant operation due to a changing generation mix: Analysis of the changes in the electrical power system characteristics with the current and future generation mix, for example impact of reduction of short circuit power. Current mix of generation as well as future scenarios are included.
  • Developing a co-simulation platform to evaluate impacts of grid faults in NPPs: The objective is to reach a general understanding on the effects on NPP operations from faults or outage events occurring in the electrical system. A detailed multi-physic simulation model is developed for interfacing the thermomechanical and control systems in the NPP, its on-site electric power system, and the off-site high voltage power system model.
  • Transfer from baseload to flexibility of NPPs. German Case Study: The change in the Nordic generation mix sets new prerequisites for the generators on the market. In Germany such a transition has been ongoing on a large scale for several years. With a decreasing amount of dispatchable generation, it has been necessary to operate the remaining generation more flexibly than historically. In this study, German NPP representatives have been interviewed.

We have also invited guest speakers from related areas that will broaden the perspective on system safety, international collaboration and EMP.

GINO is financed by Vattenfall, Uniper, TVO, Fortum, Skellefteå Kraft, Karlstad Energi and The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority.

Most welcome to attend the seminar!
