Webinar Abstract: As power systems continue to evolve, control rooms and other operational measures must evolve alongside them. The Global Power System Transformation (G-PST) Consortium’s Pillar 2 lead organization, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), presented this webinar examining good practices for designing power system control rooms with high penetrations of variable renewable energy in mind. Presentations focused on sharing experiences and lessons that support cutting-edge upgrades to control rooms as countries integrate greater shares of renewables into their power sectors. The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) shared learnings from their experience leading work on developing control rooms of the future and PLN Indonesia highlighted plans for upgrading their Java-Bali grid control room.
