G-PST/ESIG Webinar Series: Developing an EMT Study and Analysis Environment for a 100% Inverter Based Power System
December 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
Featured Speaker: Jun Bum Kwon, Senior Engineer, Energinet
About the Webinar: A significant amount of power electronics interfaced devices (PEIDs) will be integrated into the Danish system over the coming years. This brings new challenges in operating the power system securely and reliably. For instance, weak grid conditions, large deviations in short circuit power, complex faults, and different control and protection behavior will become more common in a 100 % PEIDs based systems. As a TSO responsible for the secure operation of entire power system, understanding and analyzing correct dynamic behavior in simulation-based analysis, and proposing mitigation measures are becoming the main key challenges. For this, new simulation environments are needed.
This webinar explores the challenges associated with operating a 100% PEIDs-based power system with a focus on use of simulation-support for decision making. The session will shed light on the current complexities within the Danish power grid, emphasizing the increasing penetration of renewable energy. The pivotal role of Electromagnetic Transient (EMT) studies in understanding and mitigating these challenges will be addressed. The webinar will also share insights into the process and methodology behind developing a system-level EMT study and analysis environment. Furthermore, the webinar will explore the future applications of this innovative environment, offering a glimpse into its potential impact on the Danish power system.
About the Speaker: Jun Bum Kwon has a background as an power electronics and power system engineer with more than 10 years of experience. For the past 8 years he has worked at Energinet as a Grid Analyst and Senior Power System Engineer, with technical lead/support responsibilities in multiple cross-cutting projects, including international projects such as the Bornholm
Energy Island and North Sea Wind Power HUB, and currently leads strategic Grid forming roadmap and development of EMT system level simulations.
Moreover, Jun has shared this knowledge in multiple international projects as a technical expert through Energinet Associated Activities, assisting TSOs globally with integrating large shares of renewable energy by increasing their respective choice awareness. Jun is also the author of more than 40 papers, focusing on harmonic studies, EMT studies as well as studies related to operation and design of HVAC and HVDC systems.
