Our research is developing the future's system solutions for hydropower, wind power and the power grid at the Norwegian, Nordic and European level –including in production planning, the development of offshore wind power and smart grids. We conduct internationally leading research that covers the entire energy chain, from production through storage and distribution, to end-use and environmental impacts.
Ancillary system services
A constant equilibrium between power generation and consumption is needed to balance any electric system. Without an equilibrium the result will be frequency deviations and possibly system blackout. To prevent this the TSO manages a set of system services through reserve markets.
