EES-UETP Course on low inertia power systems

L. Rouco L. Sigrist J. Renedo

April 2019 - April 2019

Funding entity EES-UETP

Power systems worldwide are experiencing huge transformations as the transition to carbon neutral economies progresses. Much thermal generation will be substituted by renewable energy resources (wind, solar). The power system will change from a synchronous generation based system to a system with mostly generation connected through inverters. Among the system aspects affected by this transformation is the loss of inertia of the rotating masses of thermal generators and even the loss of the notion of system frequency. This course will address problems arising in low inertia systems and even with zero rotating inertia. Island systems will be addressed as they represent real life laboratories of low inertia systems.

    Research topics:
  • Stability: large disturbance stability, tuning of frequency loadshedding schemes, excitation control, small disturbance stability, tuning of power system stabilizers, identification of AVR and governor models
