Grid-Forming Techniques for Converter-Dominated Power Systems

Modern electric power systems are moving rapidly towards large-scale adoption of renewable energy resources. While this is immensely beneficial for sustainability and the environmental impact of energy systems, it challenges the ways we have developed to operate our continent-wide power systems. In particular we will face large frequency swings that come about as we replace conventional generators with renewable resources. This research aims to study, devise, and assess new methods for the operation of modern, renewable-intensive power systems using a host of mathematical, computer simulation, and experimental approaches. The outcomes of this research will enable us to continue to develop renewable energy resources without hampering the security and operability of our strategic power systems.
