Preparing a System Operator’s Study Environment for a 100% Inverter-based Power System
October 13, 2021 – 3:00 PM EDT | Featured Speaker: Christian Frank Flytkjær, Senior Manager, Grid Analysis, Energinet
This presentation will feature a series of examples ranging from grid integration and operation of wind power plant and interconnectors hybrids, to design and integration of Denmark’s future energy islands (integration of systems in systems), to dimensioning of fast reserves and key findings from a number of critical events that occurred in the Danish system. Strategies for ensuring model performance and maintenance will be discussed as well. Register.
This webinar will introduce the types of performance issues associated with weak grid and related mitigations used in the industry and how the weak grid operation challenges have changed in recent years due to the large deployment of IBRs, and aspects of grid code requirements that affect the risk of weak grid related issues in the lifetime of IBR plants. The presentation will also include observations on study, modeling and short circuit ratio (SCR) screening aspects based on recent experiences. Register.
