Electric Power Grid Reliability and Stability: Challenges and Solutions
Throughout the world, the reliability of a nation’s electric power grid is critical to societal health. Many compounding challenges are resulting in new struggles for maintaining the reliability of many grids, including those in the United States. These challenges, among others, include increased transmission loading coupled with higher renewable generation. In some cases, traditional engineering methods fail to address these new challenges. However, new fun69damental technologies provide power engineers with new cost-effective approaches. These technologies include GPS timing, high-bandwidth and high-speed communication, and high-current power electronics. This talk will describe, at a non-technical level, these challenges and potential solutions.
