Project abstract

This project deals with the dynamic behavior of a power system with large amounts of wind power (full converters). A high wind penetration results in low inertia in the system. The questions are
a. What are the effects of low inertia on the system transient stability, small signal stability, frequency control and/or other phenomena?
b. What are the optimal solutions to increase the system inertia? (More conventional generators, advanced control strategies to make additional virtual inertia, ...)


Summary of work

2016. The impact of the increasing of the renewable integration has been studied with regard to the following: Small Signal Stability; Transient Stability; Coherency; Frequency Response. The research has been split in different conferences and a journal paper already published.

2019: The research has been focused on coherency studies and frequency stability. Papers have been presented at several peer-reviewed conferences, and two more journal papers have been published.
