Topic:
Challenges of Integrating a Large Amount of Renewable Energy Sources into the Power Grid

Concerned by the threat of global warming caused by emission of carbon and other pollutants, there is a growing interest and activities that promote cleaner source of energy. An increasing amount of renewable energy sources (RES) are being added and many more are in the planning stage of being added into the power grid of the US and around the world. While addition of RES into the power grid can bring in some tangible benefits such as reduction of carbon emissions, it also creates many other challenges. Some of those challenges include:
1) increasing uncertainty of net load in the system,
2) negative prices and declining generator profitability,
3) dwindling amount of system inertia from rotating generators, being replaced by RES, and
4) need for increasing amount of robust transmission system to support the integration of large amount of RES.
Those challenges and potential solutions to some of those challenges will be presented in this seminar.
