PES Day Webinar: Towards Fully Renewable Power System: Real-World Case Studies and Lessons Learned


IEEE PES Region 2 welcomes you to join this PES Day webinar provided by Dr. Antonio Conejo, a Professor of Integrated Systems Engineering and Electrical & Computer Engineering departments at The Ohio State University. 1 PDH will be provided to attendees who will be tracked and proven to be in attendance for this entire webinar.

Abstract: This presentation reviews a number of real-world case studies of high integration of utility-scale weather-dependent renewable sources (wind- and solar-based power units) in power systems. Such review allows extracting a number of relevant lessons for the future. We consider systems with high renewable integration, such as those of Spain and Texas, and systems with high potential of renewable integration, such as that of Saudi Arabia. The roles of storage, transmission enhancement (including DC links), and demand flexibility are discussed. We analyze how to advantageously exploit the coupling with synergistic systems, such as natural-gas and water systems. Both economic and energy-security issues are considered.
