IEEE PI2 Austin, March 2019, Tech Meeting, "Dynamic Stability on the ERCOT Transmission System"


IEEE PI2 Austin, March 2019, Tech Meeting

We ask that all attendees order at least $20 in food and drink, or consider this to be a cover charge.


As the ERCOT grid evolves, new stability challenges are emerging.  In a system characterized by high penetrations of inverter-based resources and series compensated lines, innovations in modeling and simulation techniques are required to evaluate system stability and ensure reliability.

Dynamic Stability on the ERCOT Transmission System



John Schmall received a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in 1991. After receiving his degree, he worked for Commonwealth Edison in Chicago, IL where he completed assignments in both distribution design and transmission planning. He joined ERCOT in 2005 where his responsibilities have included dynamic analysis and modeling associated with wind integration, compliance with NERC standards, voltage stability, and underfrequency load shedding program assessments. He is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and a Registered Professional Engineer in the State of Illinois.
