iTesla proyecto

iTesla (Innovative Tools for Electrical System Security Within Large Areas) is a collaborative I+D project of European scope funded by the European Commission within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).

iTesla Project’s purpose is to develop a set of tools that will help the future operation of pan-European electricity transmission. This toolkit will step forward in innovation: it will perform dynamic operational simulations following a probabilistic approach, going beyond the current focus on “N-1? and optimising the capabilities of network traffic at different scales, both spatial (national, regional, pan-European) and time (two days away, a day view, intraday real-time).

This toolkit will be available through a flexible IT platform allowing operators to perform simulations addressing both network, regional or pan-European in its own network, coordinated regional systems or completely pan-European system

The other project partners are:

  • RTE  (France) (Project leader)
  • Elia (Belgium)
  • NGC (UK)
  • REN (Portugal)
  • STATNETT (Norway)
  • IPTO (Greece)
  • CORESO (Belgium)
  • ARTELYS (France)
  • BULL (France)
  • PEPITE (Belgium)
  • QUINARY (Italy)
  • Imperial College London (United Kingdom)
  • INESC Porto (Portugal)
  • KTH (Sweden)
  • KU Leuven (Belgium)
  • RSE (Italy)
  • DTU (Denmark)
  • TRACTEBEL (Belgium)
  • TECHNOFI (France)


Grupo AIA‘s role in the project is twofold:

  • Building a common data model for the dynamic exchange of information between TSOs (Transmission System Operator).
  • Evaluate defence plans and develop methods for grid restoration at Pan-European level.

The project is being carried out between 2012 and 2015.
