Grid operation

As a transmission system operator (TSO) and operator of the APG control area, APG is responsible for the safe operation of the Austrian transmission grid. In general, “grid system operation” is understood to refer to all operating activities aimed at providing grid access to connected producers and consumers at agreed grid quality parameters (frequency, voltage) as well as restoring access following a failure-related interruption in service. The requirements for secure system operation are contained in the network codes and guidelines issued by the EU. This legislation aims to create a harmonised system operation regime for efficient grid use across country borders and to ensure network security across interconnected systems.
