Webinar: NERC Update on IBR Modeling Guidelines and Experience
December 17, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Featured Speaker: Ryan Quint, Senior Manager, BPS Security and Grid Transformation, NERC
Webinar Abstract: This webinar will focus on modeling bulk power system (BPS)-connected inverter-based resources and the aggregate impact of distributed energy resources (DERs), both increasingly critical components for transmission planners in today’s world. Accurate modeling of BPS-connected inverter-based resources continues to be a challenge for industry, with significant focus on developing study processes conducive to gathering, validating, and benchmarking models. As system short-circuit strength decreases in many areas, focus is turning to the use of electromagnetic transient (EMT) simulation techniques to develop corrective actions for complex challenges with inverter-based resource integration. Further, the increasing growth of DERs across many areas is complicating the modeling challenges as well. Gathering suitable information to develop a reasonable representation of the aggregate amount of DERs is a challenge in itself, let alone executing detailed engineering studies that account for possible forecasting errors in truly distributed resources. Impacts to underfrequency load shedding operations, stability margins, BPS voltage support, and other BPS reliability metrics all need to be studied to ensure adequate levels of reliability on the BPS. This webinar will dive into some of the challenges we face and offer ideas and recommendations on how to move forward.
About the Speaker: Ryan Quint is a Senior Manager at the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, where he coordinates a number of NERC technical groups focused on emerging reliability risks. Most recently, his focus has been on the reliable integration of large amounts of bulk power system-connected inverter based resources and aggregate distributed energy resources. Ryan has also worked at the Bonneville Power Administration and Dominion Virginia Power in various roles. He received his PhD from Virginia Tech, and is a registered Professional Engineer in the state of Virginia.
