This project is a study into the transmission network system setup of tomorrow in the Netherlands. This work was carried out at TenneT TSO and investigates the Network behavior in response to faults at various locations in the system and the influence of varying electrical generation and loads under four growth scenarios envisaged by TenneT in the vision 2030 document for the electrical power grid in the Netherlands. The work analyzes the behavior of voltage, frequency and dynamic power flows at the focal production centers in the Netherlands in 2030. Grid modeling has been carried out using calculated equivalent system inertia time for the rest of the dutch grid. Project executed in DIgSILENT Powerfactory software.
