Abstract

The present paper deals with the new opportunities deriving from the interconnections of the European and North African transmission systems. In order to achieve a single international market for electricity exchanges, interconnections between networks in different countries are becoming increasingly important and Sicily, for its geographical position in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, will undoubtedly play an important role as an electrical bridge between Europe and the North Africa in the near future. The paper, presenting the actual electro-energetic context of Tunisia, reports the new important interconnection already realized in South Italy (in particular in Sicily) and describe the planned interventions of the near future. In the second part of the paper, using the Neplan software package (10.7.4, NEPLAN AG, CH-8700 Küsnacht (ZH), Switzerland) for simulating the grid, some load flows are carried out to check some operating scenarios (2020 and 2025) considering energy flows from north to south, avoiding system violations.
