Modern Grid Resilience, Sustainability, Protection and Operation

Share

Abstract – Resilient grid is a paradigm shift which requires a new line of thinking in the engineering, infrastructure, managing reliable operation and maintenance of the grid. The importance of modern electricity grid for sustainable delivery of reliable, communicative, and high-quality electricity is paramount.

 The Electric power industry continues to transform at an accelerating rate. Demand for bundled load is on decline which directly affects the supply side. 

* Characteristics and behavior of the system are changing. Renewable energy sources (RES) intermittency have introduced challenges in dispatching mix impacting load forecasting, voltage spikes, frequency excursions, and cyclic operation of thermal plants.

* The need for timing precision, new protection, automation, and operational solutions have become vital. Advanced simulation tools are needed to thoroughly simulate solutions for deployment given the dynamic power system changes. New solutions including topologies, algorithms, and deployment strategies are needed.

 A changing environment requires a transformed grid.  Advancements in Artificial Intelligence have helped in growth and in acceptance of digital platforms, and more efficient energy-management.  The need for new robust and well tested solutions never been more acute.  When properly implemented, advanced portfolio of sensors, timing technologies, services and solutions enable us to build more reliable systems supporting today’s needs and future autonomous grids.

This lecture will cover energy and technology transformation, challenges that industry is addressing and solutions to manage operational aspects of the grid system, assets over life cycle, security, and the new skillsets required.
