4 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 DESCRIPTION OF THE REPORT This report is an overview of the Nordic and Baltic HVAC transmission grid disturbance statistics for the year providing the statistical data are Energinet.dk in Denmark, Elering in Estonia, Fingrid Oyj in Finland, Landsnet in Iceland, Augstsprieguma tīkls in Latvia, Litgrid in Lithuania, Statnett SF in Norway and Svenska kraftnät in Sweden. The statistics can be found at ENTSO-E website, The disturbance data of the whole Denmark is included in this report, although only the grid of eastern Denmark belongs to the synchronous Nordic grid. Figure presents the grids of the statistics. Although this summary originates from the Nordic and Baltic co-operation that aims to use the combined experience of the eight countries regarding the design and operation of their respective power systems, other ENTSO-E countries are encouraged to participate in the statistics as well. The report is made according to the Nordel Guidelines for Classification of Grid Disturbances [1] and includes the faults causing disturbances in the kv grids. The guidelines for the Classification of Grid Disturbances were prepared by Nordel 1 during the years and have been in use since Most charts include data for the ten-year period In some cases where older data has been available, even longer periods have been used. The material in the statistics covers the main systems and associated network devices with the 100 kv voltage level as the imum. Control equipment and installations for reactive compensation are also included in the statistics. The guidelines and disturbance statistics were in the Scandinavian language until In 2007, however, the guidelines were translated into English and the report of the statistical year 2006 was the first set of statistics written in English. The structure of these statistics is similar to the 2006 statistics. Despite common guidelines, there are slight differences in the interpretations between different countries and companies. These differences may have a or effect on the statistical material and are considered being of little significance. Nevertheless, users should partly because of these differences, but also because of the different countries or transmission and power companies maintenance and general policies use the appropriate published average values. Values concerning control equipment and unspecified faults or causes should be used with wider margins than other values. 1 Nordel was the co-operation organization of the Nordic until Page 4 of 79

5 The report is organised as follows. Chapter 2 summarises the statistics, covering the consequences of disturbances in the form of energy not supplied (ENS) and covering the total number of disturbances in the Nordic and Baltic power system. In addition, each Transmission System Operator has presented the most important issues of the year Chapter 3 discusses the disturbances and focuses on the analysis and allocation of the causes of disturbances. The distribution of disturbances during the year 2014 for each country is presented; for example, the consequences of the disturbances in the form of energy not supplied. Chapter 4 presents the tables and figures of energy not supplied for each country and Chapter 5 discusses the faults in different components. A summary of all the faults is followed by the presentation of more detailed statistics. Chapter 6 covers outages in the various power system units. This part of the statistics starts from the year CONTACT PERSONS Each country is represented by at least one contact person, responsible for his/her country s statistical information. The contact person can provide additional information concerning the ENTSO- E Nordic and Baltic disturbance statistics. The relevant contact information is given in Appendix 3. There are no common Nordic and Baltic disturbance statistics for voltage levels lower than 100 kv. However, Appendix 4 presents the relevant contact persons for these statistics. Page 5 of 79

In the statistics, voltage levels are grouped as statistical voltages according to the table. TABLE NOMINAL VOLTAGE LEVELS (U N) IN THE NORDIC AND BALTIC NETWORKS, THE RESPECTIVE STATISTICAL VOLTAGES AND THE PERCENTAGE OF THE GRID AT THE RESPECTIVE NOMINAL VOLTAGE LEVEL (P) Denmark Finland Iceland Norway Sweden Estonia Latvia Lithuania Statistical voltage range, kv kv kv kv kv kv U N P % U N P % U N P % U N P % U N P % U N P % U N P % U N P % THE SCOPE AND LIMITATIONS OF THE STATISTICS Table presents the coverage of the statistics in each country. The percentage of the grid is estimated according to the length of lines included in the statistics material divided by the actual length of lines in the grid. The data, which the collect from the grid owners, is not necessarily one hundred percent accurate because the collected values are not fully consistent. Page 7 of 79

The network statistics of each country cover data from several grid owners, and the representation of their statistics is not fully consistent. Finland: The data includes approximately 96 % of Finnish 110 kv lines and approximately 90 % of 110/20 kv transformers. Iceland: The network statistics cover the whole 220 kv and 132 kv voltage levels. Norway: A large part of the 110 and 132 kv network is resonant earthed. This category is combined with the kv solid earthed network in these statistics. The ten-year average values for the Baltic countries are not available in this report because they only have data from the year Hence, the Baltic countries are presented with statistics from the year 2014 and the average values are only calculated with the data from the Nordic countries.

9 2 SUMMARY 2.1 OVERVIEW OF THE NORDIC AND BALTIC COUNTRIES In 2014, the energy not supplied (ENS) due to faults in the Nordic and Baltic main grids was 4.86 GWh. The ENS for the Nordic main grid totalled 4.76 GWh, which is below the ten-year average 6.66 GWh. The energy not supplied and corresponding ten-year average values for the period in each country are presented in the following sections. The sections also present the number of disturbances for each country as well as the number of disturbances that caused energy not supplied in In addition, the summaries present the most important issues in 2014 defined by each Transmission System Operator. 2.2 SUMMARY OF DENMARK In Denmark, the energy not supplied in 2014 was 23.9 MWh (ten-year average 19.1 MWh). The number of grid disturbances was 77 (ten-year average 64) and 7 of them caused ENS. On average, 7 disturbances per year caused ENS in In 2014, 42 % of ENS was caused by faults during operation and maintenance and 48 % of ENS was caused by faults in adjoining statistical areas (statistical category 'Other'). 2.3 SUMMARY OF FINLAND In Finland, the energy not supplied in 2014 was 499 MWh (ten-year average 356 MWh). The number of grid disturbances was 513 (ten-year average 397) and 90 of them caused ENS. On average, 74 disturbances per year caused ENS in In 2014, 58 % of ENS was caused by overhead lines faults and 13 % by substation faults. The most significant reasons for ENS were Other causes 54 % and Technical equipment 23 %. Most of the disturbances were caused by Lightning and occurred during the summer months. 2.4 SUMMARY OF ESTONIA In Estonia, the energy not supplied in 2014 was 29.7 MWh (ten-year average 161 MWh). The number of grid disturbances was 225 (ten-year average 260) of which 11 caused ENS. On average, 20 disturbances per year caused ENS in In 2014, 65 % of ENS was caused by a fault in the adjoining network of a big customer connected to the 110 kv transmission grid. In the transmission grid, the most influential fault for Page 9 of 79

10 customers occurred in June 6th: after line tripping the transformers automatic reserve switching failed to connect a replacement transformer after a transformer disconnected. This resulted in 5.5 MWh ENS for customers. More than half of the disturbances were caused by environmental causes (stork contaation and lightning) on the 110 kv overhead lines and they occurred during the summer months. However, these were only insulator flashovers and did not cause any ENS. 2.5 SUMMARY OF ICELAND In Iceland, the energy not supplied in 2014 was MWh (ten-year average 1179 MWh). The total number of disturbances was 40 (ten-year average 31) of which 23 caused ENS. On average, 18 disturbances per year caused ENS in Registered grid disturbances increased in 2014 compared with the previous year. The weather played a central role in most cases. During the wintertime in January, February and October, the weather related disturbances caused some ENS. In May August, three large disturbances resulted in the trip of power intensive industry causing the major part of ENS this year, total of 654 MWh. On June 18th, an unusual disturbance in the transmission system occurred and it was the largest disturbance this year. It was caused by an upgrade of the EMS system in the control centre. The automatic generation control AGC received wrong parameters that resulted in units receiving wrong set points. This caused an under frequency and a trip of load. The total ENS of this event was 335 MWh 2.6 SUMMARY OF LATVIA In Latvia the energy not supplied (ENS) in 2014 was 35.6 MWh. The number of grid disturbances was 151 of which 19 caused ENS. There was one grid disturbance, caused by a fire in the overhead line corridor ( external influence ) that caused 43 % of 2014 ENS. According to the overall disturbance origins, 78 % of the ENS was caused by faults in overhead lines and 22 % in substations. 73 (48 %) disturbances were cleared with a successful high-speed reclosing. 2.7 SUMMARY OF LITHUANIA In Lithuania, the energy not supplied in 2014 was 39.2 MWh and originated from the 110 kv voltage grid. The total number of grid disturbances was 160 and 25 of them caused ENS. In 2014, 77 % of ENS was caused by substation faults and 13 % by overhead line faults. 124 disturbances were cleared with a successful auto-reclosing. Page 10 of 79

11 On February 2nd, one of two power transformers was taken out of service at the 110/10/10kV substation Amaliai since the 110 kv inlet circuit breaker of the transformer needed maintenance. During the maintenance, incorrect protections of the active inlet circuit breaker by the telecommand disconnected the line circuit breaker at the supplying Kaunas substation. This fault resulted in 26 MWh ENS. The largest number of the disturbances were caused by External influences and occurred during the summer months. 2.8 SUMMARY OF NORWAY In Norway, the energy not supplied in 2014 was 2165 MWh (ten-year average 3316 MWh). The number of grid disturbances was 461 (ten-year average 293) and 146 of them caused ENS. On average, 95 disturbances per year caused ENS in Compared to the ten-year average, there was an increase of faults in two categories: weather related and reactive components. In 2014 there were three major disturbances in the 420 kv network. They resulted all in outages of a gas pipeline teral and it caused approximately 1/3 of the total ENS. 2.9 SUMMARY OF SWEDEN In Sweden, the energy not supplied in 2014 was MWh (ten-year average MWh). There were 759 grid disturbances (ten-year average 546) of which 202 caused ENS. On average, 157 disturbances per year caused ENS in This year MWh of ENS was caused by faults on the 400kV grid. 70 % of all disturbances during 2014 occurred during the summer months, from June to August. (Ten-year average 50 % for the same time period.) In 2014, 41.7 % of ENS was caused by line faults and 54.5 % by substation faults. The main cause for ENS during 2014 was technical equipment 51 %, followed by lightning and unknown, 20 % and 23 % respectively. There were 134 faults with an unknown cause, many of those probably caused by lightning but not confirmed. 759 disturbances is an extremely high compared with a normal year. In 2014 there were 429 faults caused by lightning. This can be explained by an unusual number of thunderstorms during the summer. Sweden had some very unusual events during one week of July when seven instrument transformers exploded. It was during an unusually long warm period, but still on a temperature below 40 C.

12 3 DISTURBANCES This chapter includes an overview of disturbances in the Nordic and Baltic countries. It also presents the connection between disturbances, energy not supplied, causes of faults, and distribution during the year 2014, together with the development of the number of disturbances over the ten-year period It is important to note the difference between a disturbance and a fault. A disturbance may consist of a single fault, but it can also contain many faults, typically consisting of an initial fault followed by some secondary faults. Grid disturbances are defined as: Outages, forced or unintended disconnection or failed reconnection as a result of faults in the power grid [1, 3]. 3.1 ANNUAL NUMBER OF DISTURBANCES DURING THE PERIOD The number of disturbances during the year 2014 in the Nordic and Baltic main grids was The number for the Nordic main grids was 1850, which is above the ten-year average of The number of grid disturbances cannot directly be used for comparative purposes between countries because of the large differences between external conditions in the transmission networks of the Nordic and Baltic countries. Table presents the sum of disturbances during the year 2014 for the Nordic and Baltic countries and the annual average for the period for the Nordic countries for the complete kv grids. Figure shows the development of the number of disturbances in each Nordic country during the period TABLE THE NUMBER OF GRID DISTURBANCES IN EACH NORDIC AND BALTIC COUNTRY IN 2014 AND THE ANNUAL AVERAGE FOR THE PERIOD Number of disturbances Number of disturbances causing ENS 1) Denmark Estonia Finland Iceland Latvia Lithuania Norway Sweden Total ) The time period is because every country does not have complete data before Page 12 of 79

16 3.3 DISTURBANCES DISTRIBUTED ACCORDING TO CAUSE There are some or scale differences in the definitions of fault causes and disturbances between countries. Some countries use up to 40 different options, and others differentiate between primary and underlying causes. The exact definitions are listed in section in the Nordel Guidelines [1]. The Nordic and Baltic statistics use seven different options for fault causes and list the primary cause of the event as the starting point. Table and Table present an overview of the causes of grid disturbances and energy not supplied in each Nordic and Baltic country, respectively. Each country in this statistics has its own detailed way of gathering data according to fault cause as is explained in Appendix 2. The guidelines [1] describe the relations between the detailed fault causes and the common Nordic cause allocation. Page 16 of 79

21 4 ENERGY NOT SUPPLIED (ENS) This chapter presents an overview of energy not supplied (ENS) in the Nordic and Baltic countries. One should remember that the amount of ENS is always an estimation. The accuracy of the estimation varies between companies in different countries and so does the calculation method for energy not supplied, as can be seen in Appendix 1. Energy not supplied is defined as: The estimated energy, which would have been supplied to end users if no interruption and no transmission restrictions had occurred [1] [3]. 4.1 ENERGY NOT SUPPLIED DISTRIBUTED ACCORDING TO VOLTAGE LEVEL Table shows the amount of energy not supplied in the five Nordic and three Baltic countries and its distribution according to voltage level.

22 Figure presents the energy not supplied according to the different voltage levels for the year 2014 in the Nordic and Baltic countries and Figure summarises the energy not supplied according to the different voltage levels for the period for the Nordic countries. A voltage level refers to the primary fault of the respective disturbance.

24 Ppm (parts per million) represents ENS as a proportional value of the consumed energy, which is calculated: ENS (MWh) 10 6 / consumption (MWh). The sum of the ENS divided according to installation may not be exactly 100 % because all the ENS is not always connected with a cause. Figure presents the progression of ENS during the period for the Nordic countries. One should note that there is a considerable difference from year to year depending on occasional events, such as storms. These events have a significant effect on each country s yearly statistics. FIGURE ENERGY NOT SUPPLIED (ENS) DIVIDED BY CONSUMPTION (PPM) IN EACH NORDIC COUNTRY 1) An unusual number of disturbances, which had an influence on the power intensive industry, caused the high value of energy not supplied in Iceland during 2007 and ) The unusually high ENS divided by the consumption in 2011 in Norway was caused by extreme weather conditions in December (aka the storm named Dagmar). 4.3 ENERGY NOT SUPPLIED (ENS) DISTRIBUTED ACCORDING TO MONTH Figure and Figure present the distribution of energy not supplied according to month in the Nordic and Baltic countries, respectively.

Therefore, the data is not necessarily comparable. Page 30 of 79

31 5 FAULTS IN POWER SYSTEM COMPONENTS 5.1 DEFINITIONS AND SCOPE A fault in a component implies that it is not able to perform its function properly. Faults can have many causes, for example manufacturing defects or insufficient maintenance. This chapter presents the fault statistics for different grid components. One should take note of both the causes and consequences of the fault when analysing the fault frequencies of different devices. Overhead lines, for example, normally have more faults than cables. On the other hand, cables normally have considerably longer repair times than overhead lines. A component fault is defined as: The inability of a component to perform its required function [4]. The scope of the statistics, according to the guidelines [1], is the following: "The statistics comprise: Grid disturbances Faults causing or aggravating a grid disturbance Disconnection of end users in connection with grid disturbances Outage in parts of the electricity system in conjunction with grid disturbance The statistics do not comprise: Faults in production units Faults detected during maintenance Planned operational interruptions in parts of the electricity system Behaviour of circuit breakers and relay protection if they do not result in or extend a grid disturbance" This chapter gives an overview of all faults registered in the component groups used in these statistics, followed by more detailed statistics relating to each specific component group. Tenyear average values have been calculated for most components. For overhead lines, even a longer period has been used due to their long lifetime. The averages are calculated on the basis of the number of components with the number of faults for each time period, which takes into consideration the annual variation in the number of components. This chapter also presents fault trend curves for some components. The trend curves show the variation in the fault frequencies of consecutive five-year periods. These curves are grouped into kv, kv and kv voltage levels for most of the components. Readers who need more detailed data should use the national statistics published by the national regulators.

In addition, the table shows the overhead line length and the number of power transformers in order to give a view of the grid size in each country. One should note that the number of faults includes all faults; not just faults on lines and in power transformers.

Page 32 of 79

33 Table and Table show the number of faults classified according to the component groups used in this statistics. One should note that not all countries have every type of equipment in their network. For example static var compensators (SVCs) or STATCOM installations do not exist in every country. The distribution of the number of components can also vary from country to country, so one should be careful when comparing countries. Note that statistics also include faults that begin outside the voltage range of the statistics (typically from networks with voltages lower than 100 kv) but still influence statistic area.

Therefore, the tables in this section show the distribution of faults in 2014 as well as the average values for the period The tables also give the faults distributed by cause during the period Along with the tables, the annual distribution of faults and the number of permanent faults during the period is presented graphically for all voltage levels. The section also presents the trend curves for overhead line faults.

46 The main explanation for the high values in the fault trend for Sweden during the years is that there were several cable faults in 2008, as seen in Figure FAULTS IN POWER TRANSFORMERS The tables in this section present the distribution of faults for the year 2014 and for the period in power transformers at each respective voltage level. In addition, the tables present the distribution of faults according to cause during the ten-year period The annual distribution of faults during the period is presented graphically for all voltage levels. Fault trends for the Nordic power transformers are presented in Figure 5.5.4, Figure and Figure For power transformers, the statistics state the rated voltage of the winding with the highest voltage, as stated in Section 6.2 in the guidelines [1].

In addition, the tables present the distribution of faults according to cause during the ten-year period. Both current and voltage transformers are included among instrument transformers. A three-phase instrument transformer is treated as one unit. If a single-phase transformer is installed, it is also treated as a single unit. The figures in this section present the fault trends for instrument transformers at each statistical voltage level in the Nordic countries. Page 50 of 79

All of the transformers that exploded were from the same manufacturer, of the same type and were manufactured the same year and they exploded during the same week after a long and warm summer period. Page 52 of 79

53 FIGURE FAULT TRENDS AS FIVE-YEAR AVERAGES FOR INSTRUMENT TRANSFORMERS AT THE VOLTAGE LEVEL KV IN EACH NORDIC COUNTRY The high value for the Danish fault trend during is caused by the transformer failures during years 2008 and Another reason is due to the fact that the number of instrument transformers is significantly smaller in Denmark than the other countries.

This is the reason for the high number of circuit breaker faults in Sweden, because a reactor breaker is operated significantly more often than a line breaker. 2) One should note that a high number of operation and maintenance is because erroneous circuit breaker operations are registered as faults with operation and maintenance as the cause. These are caused by kv shunt reactor circuit breakers, which usually operate very often compared to other circuit breakers.

57 FIGURE FAULT TRENDS AS FIVE-YEAR AVERAGES FOR CIRCUIT BREAKERS AT THE VOLTAGE LEVEL KV IN NORDIC COUNTRIES The explanation for the remarkable improvement on the fault trend of Iceland is that most of the faults on circuit breakers up to 2003 in the 220 kv network occurred at one substation. These breakers caused problems due to gas leaks and were repaired in Page 57 of 79

58 FIGURE FAULT TRENDS AS FIVE-YEAR AVERAGES FOR CIRCUIT BREAKERS IN EACH NORDIC COUNTRY AT THE VOLTAGE LEVEL KV 5.8 FAULTS IN CONTROL EQUIPMENT The tables in this section present faults in control equipment at each respective voltage level for the year 2014 and for the period In addition, the tables present the distribution of faults according to cause during the ten-year period. Figure 5.8.1, Figure and Figure present the annual distribution of control equipment faults in the Nordic countries during the period at each statistical voltage level. For control equipment it is important to distinguish between faults in technical equipment and faults made by human errors. Human errors include for example erroneous settings in an IED. In the statistics human errors is registered under operation and maintenance, separated from the category technical equipment. In apparatus where the control equipment is integrated, (typical for SVC s) there is an uncertainty whether faults are registered in the control equipment or in the actual apparatus. When the control equipment is integrated in another installation it shall normally be categorized as faults in the installation and not in the control equipment. However, this definition is not yet fully applied in all countries. Page 58 of 79
