Investigation of Power System Stability in Hybrid Transmission Systems with High Shares of Renewable Energies
Detailed Analysis of Stability Issues in Modern Hybrid Transmission Systems
Within the context of the European energy transition, the number of renewable energy sources (RES) in the power system is increasing. RES are installed at sites, which offer a high yield of primary energy, but not necessarily nearby load centres. To cope with the mentioned challenge, transmission system operators are installing new technologies like high-voltage-direct-current (HVDC) systems. Mainly due to these developments, power system operation is changing fundamentally. This includes the need for a new evaluation of stationary power system stability to guarantee a secure and stable power system operation and to provide the system from power outages.
The current project shall thus investigate typical scenarios with high feed-ins from RES regarding power system stability. Considering that, the research group provides a developed methodology, which can be used in the project. With the help of the methodology, several eligible and plausible scenarios shall be developed as well as analysed. For completing the project a final report, covering the investigated issues, is mandatory.
Pre-requisites or requirements for the project
The available methodology is written in MATLAB, hence knowledge about programming in Matlab is required.
Further knowledge shall be available in power system stability in general, where a special focus is on stationary issues. In addition to this, the application of load-flow routines in hybrid power systems should be known.
Recommended literature and preparation
A possible starting point are books about stationary power system operation and analysis, as well as power system stability. For an instance, definitions according to  or  are used in some parts. Further literature will be handed over, when the project starts.
