Prevailing Stage of Development: 
Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
To develop and validate innovative, technology-based solutions in view of managing the pan-European electricity system experiencing a proliferation of Power Electronics (PE) devices involved in connecting generation and consumption sites. The project will contribute to the transition towards an HVAC electricsy stem where all generation and consumption is connected via 100% PE. Within MIGRATE, European TSOs from Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain and UK have joined with manufacturers and universities/research centres to address such challenges, proposing innovative solutions to progressively adjust the HVAC system operations: Firstly, a replicable methodology for appraising the distance of any EU 28 control zone to instability due to PE proliferation and for monitoring it in real time Next, innovative power system control laws are designed to cope with the lack of synchronous machines. Numerical simulations and laboratory tests deliver promising control solutions together with recommendations for new PE grid connection rules and the development of a novel protection technology and mitigation of the foreseen power quality disturbances.
