G-PST/ESIG Webinar Series: Inertia Monitoring
April 26, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Featured Speaker: Julia Matevosyan, Chief Engineer, ESIG
About the Webinar: As shares of inverter-based resources increase, fewer synchronous generators may be online at any given time. Inertial response available from synchronous machines after a sudden large imbalance on the system is therefore diminishing. Various methods and technologies to improve and supplement inertial response exist and are gradually being deployed in power systems with high shares of inverter-based resources. Regardless of the methods being used, there is a need to improve situational awareness and accurately monitor available inertial response in real-time. A number of methods for estimating and monitoring inertia have been developed over the past few years. This webinar will briefly cover the need for inertia monitoring and methods that are currently being used or proposed around the world.
About the Speaker: Julia Matevosyan is ESIG’s Chief Engineer and has more than 20 years of experience in the power industry. Prior to joining ESIG, Matevosyan was the Lead Planning Engineer of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). In her time with ERCOT, she worked on adequacy of system inertial response, system flexibility, frequency control and performance issues related to high penetration levels of inverter-based generation and ancillary services market design. Julia received her BSc from Riga Technical University in Latvia, and her MSc and PhD from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden.
