Frequency Response — December 2, 2014 at 11:00 AM (Mountain) | [presentation] |
Discussion on operational reliability of the power system with high penetrations of wind and solar. Can we keep the lights on when a large generator goes out? Wind and solar technologies are inverter-based and do not necessarily provide the same frequency response services that conventional synchronous generators can provide. We will discuss the inertial response and primary frequency response that synchronous generators can provide and how wind and solar can be enabled to provide grid-friendly services.
