Advices to ensure grid integrity

Increased knowledge leading to advices to ensure grid integrity: integrity topics are re­levant for admitting new gases to the existing network, both in terms of the scientific/technical risk quantification basis and of mitigation methods. Many of these topics have not been investigated before at all. We combine quantification of the effect of the new ga­ses and operational conditions on net­work deterioration with migration of it together with optimization of maintenance, inspection and monitoring. This means a different approach than common so far, which only puts requirements on the composition of gas.
