Responsibility Area
European Union Electricity Market Glossary




Responsibility Area means a coherent part of the interconnected transmission system including interconnectors, operated by a single Transmission System Operator (TSO) with connected Demand Facilities or Power Generating Modules, if any.


Pursuant to the ENTSO-E Supporting Document for the Network Code on Operational Security of 24 September 2013 2nd Edition Final the term 'Responsibility Area' covers a different part of the system than the term LFC Area: the TSO is responsible for maintaining the (N-1)-Criterion of its own grid and all the interconnectors to adjacent TSOs.


The components comprising this network are together called Responsibility Area.
