Below is the roadmap of future major releases of FARAO, with the associated functional perimeter, and a foreseen due date. It is important to understand that these due dates may be subject to change due to unforeseen complexity in implementing features or priority changes.

Partial release of the search-tree RAO: v2.0.0 (March 2020)

  • Optimisation of preventive PST and topological remedial actions
  • Objective function : min. margin positive
  • Branch monitored in both directions, with thresholds defined in MW
  • Branch monitored in N and N-1 states
  • AC computations (for load flow and sensitivity analyses)

First operational release of the search-tree RAO: v3.0.0 (July 2020)

  • Optimisation of preventive PST and topological remedial actions
  • Two possible objective functions : min. margin positive or min. margin maximized
  • Branch monitored in one or both directions, with thresholds defined in MW, I or %Imax
  • Branch monitored in N and N-1 states
  • AC and DC computations (for load flow and sensitivity analyses)
  • Limitation of loopflows in the RAO, as described in the ACER methodology

Enhancement of the search-tree RAO to fit CORE j-2 CC needs: v4.0.0 (October 2020)

  • Optimisation of curative PST and topological remedial actions
