Grid Stability: Maintaining grid stability with changes in electricity generation and usage
The presentation will define what’s meant by Grid Stability, why it’s important and what are the risks from Grid instability and how it has traditionally been achieved and managed in a world of centralised fossil fuelled generators. It will then move onto why the traditional approach to maintaining Grid Stability will not work for a future Net Zero world with the expected massive penetration of invertor-based renewable energy resources and how the role of Transmission and Distribution Networks will move from today’s maintaining stability through matching generation to demand by manipulating a few large fossil-fuelled generators to tomorrow’s manipulating demand to match dynamic renewable generation. The presentation will conclude by describing technology solutions to Grid Stability for the future more dynamic networks.
