  • ECIS Climate Change and National Security Speaker Series
    May 1, 2013 to May 1, 2013,

    Dr. Richard Alley is the Evan Pugh Professor at the Department of Geosciences, and Earth and Environmental Systems Institute, at the Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Alley has traveled from Antarctica to Greenland to help learn the history of Earth's climate and whether the great ice sheets will fall in the ocean and flood our coasts. With over 225 scientific publications, he has been asked to provide advice to the highest levels of government, and been recognized with numerous awards including election to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. He hosted the recent PBS miniseries “Earth: The Operators' Manual,” and has been compared to a cross between Woody Allen and Carl Sagan for his enthusiastic efforts to communicate the excitement and importance of the science to everyone.

  • Control System Design using Energy Storage to Improve Dynamic Performance in Large-Scale Electric Power Grids
    September 25, 2012 to September 25, 2012, Dreese Laboratories

    David A. Schoenwald
    Energy Storage & Transmission Analysis Department
    Sandia National Laboratories

    Abstract: This talk will present results on two applications of energy storage for the improvement of power system dynamic performance that will become necessary as more intermittent renewable energy sources are incorporated into the electric power grid. The first application is the design and implementation of a battery-based control system to reduce the variability of photovoltaic (PV) power output at the generation site. The control system is challenged with the task of reducing short-term PV output variability while avoiding the overworking of the battery, both in terms of capacity and amp capability. A full-scale implementation was deployed in a demonstration project, in partnership with an electric utility and a battery manufacturer. Both simulation and experimental results will be presented. The second application is the analysis and design of a decentralized control system to increase the damping associated with inter-area oscillation modes. These modes arise from the swinging of many generators in one part of the power grid against generators in another part of the grid. Analysis and simulation results for the control system design will be presented for both a reduced-order model of the WECC (Western Electricity Coordinating Council) and a full-scale PSLF (Positive Sequence Load Flow) model of the WECC.
