One of the main proposals of the recent Energy Strategy is to increase the contribution of the renewable energy resources in the overall energy mix. However, adding large amount of intermittent Renewable Energy power plants, like solar and wind farms, to the electrical grid generates challenges to keep supplying electricity to consumers and maintaining the stability and the reliability of the electrical systems.
In fact, Renewable Energy power plants have very poor potential to regulate the gap between the generation and the demand, since they should always be operating at the maximum possible power. Therefore, in the presence of these sources, the frequency of the power grid would changes faster in case of any disturbance. The zero inertia generators of PV and full converter wind turbines necessitates the overall inertia of the system to be decreased, which would force the existing conventional generators to provide torque and inertia trying to overcome any contingency event. This could lead to the frequency instability problem, that must be compensated using novel Smart Grid ideas.
This Special Issue will focus on all aspects related to the integration of Renewable Energies in existing Power Grids.
