Featured Speaker: Ben Kroposki, Director – Power Systems Engineering Center, National Renewable Energy Laboratory About the Webinar: Inverter-based resources (IBR) such as photovoltaics, wind, and battery energy storage systems are increasingly being deployed to meet clean energy targets around the world. These systems have traditionally been designed as grid following where they need to have a voltage waveform provided by the system to synchronize to. As synchronous generators from traditional fossil-fuel plants are removed from the grid, the power…Find out more »
Webinar: Market Design for Future Systems With a High Share of Renewable Energy: Fitness or Witless for Purpose?
Featured Speaker: Benjamin Hobbs, Theodore and Kay Schad Professor of Environmental Management, Johns Hopkins University About the Webinar: Today's power market designs were fashioned primarily for systems with dispatchable, non-storable generation-- are those designs "fit for purpose" for tomorrow's systems dominated by wind, solar, and battery resources? Although many of the fundamental principles will still apply in the future, there are several reforms that will be critical if we want to get the full economic and emissions reduction benefits of…Find out more »
Featured Speaker: Merryn York, Executive General Manager System Design Merryn York About the Webinar: The Connection Simulator Tool (CST) is an optional online portal service, released in Nov 2022, that is designed to help developers, OEMs, Network Operators, and AEMO collaborate using common data sets to rapidly verify that prospective generators can be safely connected to the electricity network. The CST provides users the ability to utilize AEMO’s protected wide-area PSCAD models. Users can run simulations on a proposed…Find out more »
