Formal consultation on LFC block operational agreement


Elia launches its public consultation on its draft proposal for the LFC block operational agreement. This document determines the dimensioning rules for “frequency restoration reserves” or ‘FRR’ (referred to as the secondary and tertiary reserves) and fulfill the obligations of load-frequency control. This concerns the process of restoring the power balance of ELIA’s control zone to its scheduled value, and resolve the residual imbalance between injections and off-take. The LFC block operational agreement is compliant with EU Regulation 2017/1485 of 2 August 2017 establishing a guideline on electricity transmission system operation. The public consultation is open from July 10 until and including August 21, 2018 and can be found on the Elia website.
