Updates: last update's detail


RTE publishes an update to potentially available capacity values for the HVB1 (63 and 90 kV) and HVB2 (225 kV) networks

Source: RTE - SGC 16/05/2011

These new values are based on a more accurate calculation of the transmission capacities of PTS infrastructures.

They will allow the existing network to be used more efficiently when connecting generators.

The new values take into account the latest queue status, and updated capacity values for public transmission system infrastructures, calculated on the basis of more accurate and more recent meteorological data.

RTE emphasizes that any attempt to connect a generation installation with a rated capacity higher than the existing potentially available capacity, would result in the transmission capacity of certain infrastructures being exceeded on a regular basis, even when all are available. In this case, connection applications cannot be accepted until the network has been developed sufficiently.

The updated potentially available capacity values can be found on the RTE website, at the following address: http://clients.rte-france.com/lang/an/clients_producteurs/services_clients/potentiel_raccordement.jsp, by substation [1], for voltage levels HVB1, HVB2.

To ensure project sponsors have access to the maximum amount of information, the values are regularly updated, to reflect changes in queue status or the commissioning of new installations. Values for each region can also be downloaded from the website.
