Title: Reliable Operational Challenges of Power Grid with high penetration of Renewable Resources

Abstract: The world wide increase of penetration of renewable energy resources in the electrical power grid and the advances in smart grid technologies require new efficient algorithms and tools to efficiently manage the power grid and electricity markets while maintaining reliability in a cost effective manner. The variability associated with the renewable resources will require more efficient monitoring, situational awareness tools and fast and sophisticated controls of the power grid. As the online rotating mass associated with the grid will be reduced due to the high penetration of renewable resources, there will be a high need for the fast evaluation of the system security under dynamic system operating conditions. This presentation will address the possible solutions for operational challenges created by the high penetration of the renewable resources.
