Improving Dynamic Performance of Low-Inertia Systems through Eigensensitivity Optimization

An increasing penetration of renewable generation has led to reduced levels of rotational inertia and damping in the power network. The consequences are higher vulnerability to disturbances and deterioration of the dynamic response of the system. To …

Active Distribution Grids Offering Ancillary Services in Islanded and Grid-Connected Mode

Future Active Distribution Grids (ADGs) will incorporate a plethora of Distributed Generators (DGs) and other Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), allowing them to provide ancillary services in grid-connected mode and, if necessary, operate in an …

Data-driven Control Design Schemes in Active Distribution Grids: Capabilities and Challenges

Today, system operators rely on local control of distributed energy resources (DERs), such as photovoltaic units, wind turbines and batteries, to increase operational flexibility. These schemes offer a communication-free, robust, cheap, but rather …
