Those working here as shift engineers (system operators) are responsible for the real-time control of the transmission network. The teams (always consisting of three people) work in a three-shift system.
Here, real-time operation is continuously prepared with a 24-hour lead time. The aim is to provide forward-looking congestion management in close international cooperation with neighboring network operators. The teams work in three shifts as well.
The colleagues here work on the further development of the system management at 50Hertz on the basis of experience gained and general technical developments. The constantly changing generation mix and the load development in our grid require innovations as well as changes in the regulations which we have to observe.
The employees in this department provide standard processes and tools for system management. They must comply with the applicable regulations, such as those arising from international committee work. New forms of cooperation are also being worked on here. The ongoing digitalization of the energy revolution plays a central role in this.
