G-PST/ESIG Webinar Series: Look Ahead Security Assessments: Operations Radar to Navigate High IBR Waters in the Journey to Net Zero
July 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Featured Speaker: Marta Val Escudero, Technical Leader, EirGrid
About the Webinar: The power system transition towards decarbonization introduces many technical challenges and increased operational complexity. In Ireland and Northern Ireland, a small synchronous power system with limited HVDC interconnection, the challenges are more pronounced and new holistic approaches have been developed to steadily increase the instantaneous share of non-synchronous resources (mostly wind) to the current level of 75%. One of the key contributors to this success story has been the implementation of Look Ahead security assessment capabilities as decision support tools in the Control Rooms. This functionality identifies potential instabilities in advance of the issues manifesting in Real Time and enables timely implementation of the required measures to meet the operational security criteria. This webinar will share EirGrid’s experience in the development and operation of Look Ahead functionality for steady state and dynamic security assessment and its integration in the Control Room environments.
