Grid Inertia and Frequency Control in Power Systems with High Penetration of Renewables

  title={Grid Inertia and Frequency Control in Power Systems with High Penetration of Renewables},
  author={Pieter Tielens and Dirk Van Hertem},
With increasing power generation out of renewable energy sources, there is a rising interest to investigate their impact on the power system and its control. In this paper, both the impact on frequency control and the capability to deliver frequency support by renewables is presented. A test grid is used to also investigate the variation of system inertia as a function of time. It is shown that by integrating renewables in the generation mix, the frequency support deteriorates, but through… Expand
