The Republic of Moldova is one of the countries most dependent on energy imports from a limited number of suppliers. In order to increase the level of security in energy supply and to create a competitive electricity market, it is necessary to interconnect the electricity systems of the Republic of Moldova and Romania (member of ENTSO-E). Interconnection can be done either synchronously or asynchronously. Although asynchronous interconnection was considered a transition solution to synchronous interconnection, Ukraine forces a rapid realization of synchronous interconnection, which makes investments in asynchronous interconnection unfeasible. Given the uncertainties about the practical possibilities of rapidly achieving synchronous interconnection, it is necessary to restructure and streamline the asynchronous interconnection project. The authors’ suggestions ensure the feasibility of the asynchronous interconnection project and in the context of a faster synchronous interconnection than the 12 to 15 years initially considered.
