Abstract

Future low carbon generation scenario would see an enhanced grid penetration of green generation sources like wind and solar, thus replacing the traditional generators. This may lead to sudden imbalances between generation and load, leading to drop in system frequency. The low inherent inertia and primary frequency response (PFR) capability of these non-synchronous generators would result in large frequency deviations during system contingencies. The uncertain and variable nature of these generation sources is likely to pose real-time operational challenges and risks for the utilities to provide PFR. This paper presents a critical review of key opportunities and challenges with high penetration of renewables in the grid, and how novel modelling techniques can help to mitigate the same.
