grid's safety

In order to introduce new technological and plant solutions, new tools and methods aimed improving grid reliabilityThe fulfilment of two conditions:• availability: capability to respond, statically and in every moment, to the customers’ global demand for power and electrical energy at the connection points, taking into account planned and forced going off-line of the components of the electricity system; • security: capability torespond to sudden disturbances such as short-circuits or forced loss of components of the electricity system. Thus, this aspect specifically considers transition effects which are not covered by the first criterion. and service quality, Terna mainly uses its own internal technicians who closely monitor and analyze the performance of systems and plants and who are constantly finding new improved solutions. Terna also relies on specialized support from builders, from the Universities and from CESI SpA, a specialized research center of which it owns 24.4%.

Improving the maintenanceOperations and works for the maintenance or recovery of efficiency, and smooth operation of the electricplants, taking into account any decrease in performance. level of grid systems has positive repercussions on the service quality and continuity. For these purposes and in order to rapidly identify and reach all systems, Terna uses a georeferencing system (GIS). Specifically, the following activity is performed:

Ensuring safety in the Electricity System means adopting adequate measures for risk prevention. These measures aim at preventing the possibility for outages to occur and at minimizing the consequences of such outages in terms of length and geographical extent.
