In particular, in case of shutdown of a NPP power unit with a capacity of 1000 MW by emergency automation system, unloading of NPP due to emergency shutdown of 750 kV overhead lines under insufficient power reserves in the power system.
To prevent the development of a system accident in the IPS of Ukraine, dispatchers of different levels of operational control applied measures to balance the power system, including the activation of emergency aid from transmission system operators of neighbouring countries. The power network operation maintenance in post-emergency schemes was also ensured.
All training participants confirmed their high level of professionalism and showed coordinated joint actions in difficult situations, which is a guarantee for the prevention of possible accidents in the power system of Ukraine.

The training that took place today confirmed that we have enough professional resources to maintain the integrity of the power system in highly complex situations”, said Vitalii Zaichenko, Chief Operation Officer – Chief Dispatcher of NPC Ukrenergo.
