The “Angola Electric Grid Studies” were developed in order to support the development of the country long term vision for the electric sector generation and transmission lines.
The objective of “Angola Electric Grid Studies” project was to carry out static simulations of the Angola electric grid for different generation scenarios (location, techniques, power, etc.).
The “Angola Electric Grid Studies” project included static network studies using various network simulation software’s, such as ANAREDE and GTMax. Therefore compromised the grid modeling of the three existing Grid Sectors (North, Center, East, South and Cabinda) and grid studies (power flow and dynamic regimen) in order to test different scenarios of grids interconnection as well as simulation different scenarios of Renewable Energy penetration.
In this project demand forecasts where performed and all generation units (Conventional, Hydro and future renewables) were considered.
