Very Large-Scale Integration of Renewables into Power Grids: Shoving through Variabilities

Share

The aggressive very-large scale integration (VLSI) of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) into power grids, not only at the macroscale level at the transmission system but fundamentally at the microscale one at the residential customer end, is creating significant challenges and complex operation paradigms for system operation and control. As the majority of the integrated RES have intermittent characteristics, uncertainties in the grid system are further exacerbated. In this talk, the historical background and drivers for the shift to RE-dominated system will be presented. The characteristics of the grid with VLSI of variable RE will be highlighted. The stochastic scheduling of generation under different operating conditions and services will be elaborated. Incorporation of smart grid tools such as demand dispatch, utility-scale energy storage, and flexible ramping products will be further illustrated.

Very Large-Scale Integration of Renewables into Power Grids: Shoving through Variabilities

Abstract:

The aggressive very-large scale integration (VLSI) of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) into power grids, not only at the macroscale level at the transmission system but fundamentally at the microscale one at the residential customer end, is creating significant challenges and complex operation paradigms for system operation and control. As the majority of the integrated RES have intermittent characteristics, uncertainties in the grid system are further exacerbated. In this talk, the historical background and drivers for the shift to RE-dominated system will be presented. The characteristics of the grid with VLSI of variable RE will be highlighted. The stochastic scheduling of generation under different operating conditions and services will be elaborated. Incorporation of smart grid tools such as demand dispatch, utility-scale energy storage, and flexible ramping products will be further illustrated.
