Investigation of Power System Stability in Hybrid Transmission Systems with High Shares of Renewable Energies

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

Project Description

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.
