WIRAB Webinar Series #5 Distributed Generation

Distributed Generation – December 18, 2014 at 11:00 AM (Mountain) | [presentation] | Distributed energy resources such as rooftop solar, can provide benefits to the system but can also pose bulk power system issues due to their interconnection requirements. We will discuss lessons learned from Germany in their rapid rooftop solar growth. We will discuss […]

WIRAB Webinar Series #4 Transient Stability

Transient Stability – December 11, 2014 at 11:00 AM (Mountain) | [presentation] | We will discuss stability of the power system with high penetrations of wind and solar. Wind and solar provide some advantages and some disadvantages to keeping the system stable when a large disturbance occurs. A bigger issue for the west in terms […]

WIRAB Webinar Series #3 Frequency Response

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 […]

WIRAB Webinar Series #2 Ramping Issues and Solutions

Ramping Issues and Solutions — November 19, 2014 at 11:00 AM (Mountain) | [presentation] | High penetrations of wind and solar can increase ramping needs. High penetrations of solar can lead to a net load “duck curve” which accentuates the need for ramping to meet the evening peak. Very high wind speeds can lead to […]

WIRAB Webinar Series: #1 Utility Operations – VER Reliability and Integration

Utility Operations – November 13, 2014 at 3:00 PM (Mountain) | [presentation] | This discussion focused on how system operators balance supply and demand when they have high penetrations of wind and solar on their system. We discussed the unit commitment process and options for intra-day unit commitment and coordinated unit commitment. We discussed the […]
