Integration of Solar, Wind and Storage systems into Distribution Grids for Network Support

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage Projects

Abstract


  • Renewable energy integration into electricity grids offers a climate-responsive approach to electricity generation and distribution. Connecting a large number of multiple, renewable resources to electricity networks has the potential to cause problems in network operation, e.g. hunting for voltage correction, unnecessary tripping of power converters, control interaction, network instability and malfunction of protection devices. This research will develop new metjhodologies and technologies for minimising these problems, and devise assessment tools to identify associated power quaity issues, network sensitivity to instability and protection performance at different levels of renewable energy penetration for network support.
