Pillar 1 – System Operator Research & Peer Learning

GPST Icon logo

Representatives from leading global technical institutes and the G-PST Founding System Operators are actively formulating and pursuing a global research agenda which lays out near-term applied research priorities which will support power system operators in reliably and cost-effectively achieving very high penetrations of inverter-based resources on their power systems over the next decade. Results of the research will be shared with all interested system operators.

Review the full list of partners contributing to the Pillar 1 Research Agenda Group.

In addition to the Research Agenda Group (RAG), Pillar 1 also includes a Research Advisory Committee (RAC), consisting of members from advanced system operators, energy companies, manufacturers, universities, national labs and consultants.

Inaugural Research Agenda Released

This document summarizes the outputs from a nine-month consultation process led by the Global Power System Transformation (G-PST) Consortium’s Research Agenda Group – which consists of senior technical staff from the six Founding System Operators and a range of leading research institutions – to build an organized, consensus-based global research agenda for the G-PST’s Founding System Operators (FSOs).

G-PST Research Agenda Group Maps Out the Research Frontier for System Operators

Representatives from leading global technical institutes and the G-PST Founding System Operators are actively defining near-term applied research priorities and programs to support system operators in achieving very high penetrations (i.e., >80%) of inverter-based variable renewable energy resources on their power systems over the next decade. This process is systematically mapping out the state-of-the-art in research, industry and practitioner communities around the world, and identifying key knowledge gaps that can be filled by cutting-edge research activities in the priority areas. It will then develop research proposals and seek to secure support from national research program managers for collaborative research with the Founding System Operators. Ultimately, this research agenda will be pursued by all participating system operators and technical institutes in the G-PST Consortium, with insights efficiently disseminated for broad adaptation and application.
