UMBRELLA is developing methods for an innovative toolbox to support the decentralised grid security approach of TSOs. The UMBRELLA toolbox will give the opportunity to intensify TSO cooperation when facing increasing complexity in system operation and volatility caused by growing generation from intermittent renewable energy sources (RES). A decentralized network security analysis with everyone "on board" using the same tools and database and evaluating solutions in a coordinated and optimized way enhances the security, flexibility and efficiency of the network operation. The functionalities of the UMBRELLA toolbox are implemented in a prototype and verified by selected test cases.
