Overvoltage in steady-state regime is a critical occurrence in electricity transmission systems across the Western Balkans. Its results are the rapid aging of equipment, supply disruptions, and large economic costs.
As a first step in ensuring high reliability and operational security in transmission systems in all six beneficiary countries, a €1 million EU grant was allocated by the WBIF in June 2017 for the purpose of preparing a feasibility study for voltage regulation and reactive power compensation in the existing network and for future grids planned in the next 5 to 10 years.
