Project consortium


MIGRATE is the largest TSO research project on European level including twelve TSOs from eleven different countries with the objective of developing and validating solutions for managing a pan-European High Voltage Alternate Current (HVAC) transmission system with a high penetration of power electronic devices.


  • Modelling, simulation, and generic test cases of transmission system dynamic behaviour under high power electronic penetration
  • New protection schemes for a grid with 100% power electronic penetration and relevant recommendations
  • Design and validation of mitigation measures


Main information:
By 2020, several areas of the HVAC pan-European transmission system will be operated with extremely high penetrations of Power Electronics (PE)-interfaced generators, thus becoming the only generating units for some periods of the day or of the year – due to renewable (wind, solar) electricity. This poses several challenges, which the project addresses together with manufacturers, universities and research centres.
