This document outlines the process ENTSO-E has undertaken to develop network codes that define security and reliability, connection, third-party access, data exchange and settlement, interoperability, operational procedures in an emergency, capacity allocation and congestion management, trading and related technical and operational provisions, transparency, balancing, harmonizing transmission tariff structures, and energy efficiency. The network codes’ characteristics, the role within the development process, the process itself, interpretation of the rules, and a process for maintaining the codes are included.

ENTSO-E defines a common set of minimum requirements for the European-wide power system. The requirements include load-frequency control and reserves principles to ensure the operational security of the system and cross-border cooperation between transmission system operators. The requirements may also dictate the characteristics of the grid-connected systems, consumption, and distribution systems. The code addresses the load-frequency structure, operational rules, quality criteria, reserve dimensions and exchange, sharing and distribution, and monitoring.

Standard IEEE 1547 is an example of an interconnection standard (commonly used in North American power systems) providing technical rules for interconnecting distributed generation resources with the electric grid. The standard’s guide introduces the background and rationale for the technical requirements, facilitates use of the standard by characterizing distributed resource technologies and related interconnection issues, and provides approaches and information to support interconnection and implementation. The standard was updated in 2014 with an amendment providing existing information on voltage, voltage regulation, and frequency.

Germany leads the world in deployment of distributed PV, with PV generation contributing approximately 40% of peak power demand during some hours of the year. This article outlines the impacts of high PV deployment in Germany on grid stability and power flows in the transmission and distribution system. It also highlights practical solutions that Germany has implemented to support frequency and voltage control and reduce congestion, and suggests new concepts for voltage-control strategies.
