Optimizing power system operations – Methods to manage the impact of renewable energy on electric grids

Share

How can transmission system operators ensure secure and reliable operation of the electric grid when renewable energy generation is uncertain? How can rooftop solar PV be a resource rather than a problem when managing voltage unbalance in distribution grids? To answer these and other questions related to renewable energy integration, new tools for power systems operations are required. This presentation will discuss our research aimed at developing such new tools. In particular, we will discuss how data-driven, optimization-based methods can help manage renewable energy variability and harness the flexibility available in the grid.
