The server platform MOLS is operated by Amprion and is made fully and transparently available to all four TSOs. Every TSO can manage recalls and monitor their own tertiary reserve providers. For this purpose, highly specialized dialogue components are used.
The tertiary control power is recalled in quarter-hour increments. Depending on request type, this call is processed from MOLS either event-driven or cyclically in quarter-hour increments. In a first step, the total need is determined across all TSOs. In the second step the provider’s ranking is determined based on the contract data and the current availability of the tertiary reserve power already delivered and any spontaneous cancellations or dropouts.
Suppliers then directly receive activation notifications about the amount and direction (positive or negative), which is then supplied by the providers accordingly. Simultaneously with the activations, the corresponding schedule nominations are generated at the TSO systems and sent out to carry out the matching between the TSOs. In order to assure the the process security, the system monitors all processes on the basis of feedback and confirmation and thus provides a highly automated and very intuitive Cockpit.
