Sept. 30, 2019 — JSC and the main two sites of the transmission system operator TenneT – TenneT TSO GmbH in Bayreuth, Germany, and TenneT TSO B. V. in Arnhem, Netherlands – have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to discuss and examine future projects in the context of electric power transmission systems for renewable energy production. The aim of this cooperation is the extension and optimization of current HPC strategies with regard to modular workflows, scheduling strategies, data handling capabilities, and the introduction of new, highly scalable algorithms and solvers for optimization problems. In addition, the cooperation plans to discuss new services such as the introduction of big data and machine learning algorithms for energy market analysis and power grid design, as well as to aid in decision-making.
This MoU builds on the fruitful HPC enabling process between JSC and TenneT which was finalized at the beginning of this year by experts in the Cross-Sectional Team Application Optimization at JSC. This allows responsibility for the newly co-designed system and regular software maintenance to be transferred to highly trained experts from TenneT and their IT systems operator.
