As shares of inverter-based resources increase, fewer synchronous generators may be online at any given time. Inertial response available from synchronous machines after a sudden large imbalance on the system is therefore diminishing. Various methods and technologies to improve and supplement inertial response exist and are gradually being deployed in power systems with high shares of inverter-based resources. Regardless of the methods being used, there is a need to improve situational awareness and accurately monitor available inertial response in real-time. A number of methods for estimating and monitoring inertia have been developed over the past few years. This webinar covers the need for inertia monitoring and methods that are currently being used or proposed around the world.
