RTE international produced a Defence Plan for the electricity network in the Ivory Coast, taking into account the operating constraints on the network over the 2020-2022 period and the assessment of its stability.

Services provided

  • Static study on the constraints of the Ivorian network
  • Analysis of the voltage map
  • Analysis of the load level of network equipment (lines, transformers…)
  • Dynamic study through simulations
  • Transient stability study to analyse voltage and frequency changes
  • Analysis in case of loss of some of the most powerful generating units and interconnections
  • Analysis of the risks of frequency collapse and loss of synchronism
  • Proposal of a defence plan to improve network security
  • Proposal of a methodology for load shedding according to different criteria (voltage, transit, frequency)
  • Proposal of thresholds for load shedding
