Topic: Assessment and Measurement of Dynamic Network and Protection Security in Smart Grids
Abstract: The integration of stochastic renewable generation in all voltage levels of existing power system gradually replacing central generation poses new challenges for transmission and distribution network design and operation.
The envisaged impact on long distance energy transports requires operational coordination between different system operators. New indicators evaluating power system stability and stability limit margin must be developed and tested. Continuous assessment of the dynamic state of the power system taking into account contingencies must be performed in parallel to system operation. Wide area monitoring systems, and new protection schemes and concepts have to be introduced to the current power system operation practice.
