This paper provides a general overview of system inertia and its impact on the transmission grid stability. In the main part of the paper different solutions that provide frequency response have been analysed. Both conventional and alternative solutions have been described and their technical parameters have been presented. It has been shown that the available energy and maximum available power for the initial inertia response are limited in case of conventional generators. On the contrary the… CONTINUE READING
