    Flexibilization - Audit to verify key flexibility parameters of conventional power plants

    To obtain an optimal economic dispatch that respects the technical restrictions of power plants, the national dispatch coordinator CDEC-SIC uses different parameters to describe those restrictions. Each power plant is parameterized according to its capabilities. To set the parameter values correctly, CDEC-SIC has to rely on the information provided by the power plants. In cooperation with STEAG Energy Services GmbH (SES), CDEC-SIC has conducted an audit in several conventional (gas and coal-fired) power plants to verify their key flexibility parameters such as minimum load, start-up time, start-up costs and ramp rate.
