Complexity paves the path to smart electrical systems

Why complexity is rising? With the integration of renewable energies, storage units including EVs, active demand and other advanced components (i.e. smart meters, smart transformers etc), into power grids, as well as all the “intelligent” functions needed for their management, the complexity of the electrical system is rising [6]. Smart electrical systems are complex because…

On Low Inertia Grids

Traditional power systems rely on conventional synchronous generators, whose output power is fully controllable, to satisfy the power demand at each time instant. With the increasing share of renewables in the grid, new stability and reliability problems arise in the power grid. The standard question is, what do we do if there is no sun…
