Upcoming Webinar: Comparing the Abilities of Energy Storage, PV, and Other Distributed Energy Resources to Provide Grid Services, Monday, March 13, 3:00pm-4:30pm ET

The grid is undergoing a transformation leading to greater utilization of Distributed Energy Resources (DER). DER devices include batteries, PV, and even aggregated hot water heaters or building lighting systems. At the core of this transformation are the services that these DER can provide to the grid. Presently each device type is siloed into its [...]

Grid System Planning for Wind: Wind Generator Modeling

A typical wind power plant may contain hundreds of wind turbines that are interconnected through a collector system. Though the impact of individual wind turbines to the electric grid is small, the larger wind power plant can have a significant impact. Because it is impractical to model the individual wind turbines for system simulations, [...]
