Role of energy storage in the frequency control of power systems with high penetration of renewable generation


16th April 2021 – 11:00-12:30

Prof. Pérez-Díaz will explain the diverse impacts of converter-interfaced renewable generation on the power system's frequency, will describe the system's ancillary services most widely used to deal with these impacts, and will expose how diverse energy storage systems (pumped-hydro, batteries, supercapacitors, flywheels) can contribute to enhance such services. In addition, some novel ancillary services recently implemented so as to cope with the impact of converter-interfaced generation on the system's quality will be briefly introduced.
