Frequency Stability of the European Interconnected Power System Under Grid Splitting in Market Zones
This paper proposes a graph theory-based approach to define the possible separation of the market zones in large power systems. The market zone partitioning is used to assess the frequency stability based on a set of parameters, including the inertia, the running capacity of the separated areas, and the power exchanged on the interconnection lines. A system split indicator is finally used to rank the worst split lines. The methodology has been tested on real scenarios of the interconnected Continental Europe power system.
