Transfer Limits Study

Saudi Electricity Company (Saudi Arabia)
AC System Studies

Operational limits for power transfer between interconnected areas in the Saudi Arabia network were estimated for different seasons. These transfer limits consider static and dynamic limitations of the system. In addition, sensitivity of transfer limit to identified crucial devices such as availability of generators for voltage support and congestion management was identified. This information helps system operator to adjust inter-area transfer to a safe level based on the availability of resources.
