Frequency Characterization and Control for Future Low Inertia Systems

With the increasing concerns on energy shortage and global environmental warnings, the research and development of various renewable energies have been made significant progress for recent years. In order to meet the energy demand and at the same time to achieve sustainable development objectives on a global scale, the Danish government has set long-term strategy of 100% renewable energies by the year 2050.

However, the decline of conventional power generation units and a rising amount of fluctuating power sources may have negative effects on the stability and reliability of the power system. Most of renewable energy generators will be connected to the grid indirectly through converters and other power electronic devices; this makes the generation system dynamic behaviour different from conventional generations and decouples the rotor of generator from other parts of power system. As a result, it is likely that uncertainty will exist over the inertial response capability of the system at high renewable energy penetration levels.

In this project, the frequency response capability is assessed on the Danish power system and the effectiveness of renewable energies’ contribution to system inertial response is evaluated in the context of system requirements. Different scenario generations are considered to examine the system frequency characterizations. In addition, studying and using synchronous condensers (SC) joined with an optimal control design for frequency improvement are investigated.

All works will be modelled and simulated on real time digital simulator (RTDS) software at PowerlabDK by the combination of Siemens A/S, Danish transmission system operator Energinet.dk and DTU.
