|Responsibility (control) area|
|European Union Electricity Market Glossary|
Responsibility (control) area is 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.
There are three possibilities when it comes to interactions of the control areas with bidding zones:
1. the control area matching the bidding zone (most often, Poland, Belgium, etc.);
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.
