Analysis of the Electric Power Potential as Illustrated by the Ues of Russia
Keywords:Unified Energy System of Russia, region generation, power grid, analysis, model, excess capacity, potential, bottlenecks
The paper presents an analysis of the current state of the Unified Energy System (UES) of Russia, which aims to identify "weak points," regional shortage and excess energy systems, locations of the electricity consumption growth, and seeks to determine the technical potential of the power grid for electricity transmission. This analysis relies on the models developed for optimization in terms of the maximum excess capacity for the entire Unified Energy System of Russia and for individual regions of the country in the context of the existing mix of generating capacity and cross-regional structure of the power grid. Calculations were made for the conditions corresponding to the reported performance of the Unified Energy System of Russia in 2020. The cross-regional power grid of the Unified Energy System of Russia is capable of covering the capacity needs of all the country's power systems, and almost everywhere has a significant available transfer capability of power transmission lines.
