Network Frequency Control with Increasing Renewable Power Plants

1. OVERVIEW

The introduction of intermittent non-dispatchable, renewable energy power plants, specifically wind and solar PV, has introduced a new dynamic in controlling network frequency for system operators worldwide.

This two day course is an introduction to the basics of frequency control, with specific reference to the impact of these renewable power plants.

The course will provide the fundamentals of network frequency control, technical limitations of traditional power plants, storage options and review what is happening internationally. It will provide a basic understanding of generation scheduling and dispatch, real time balancing of supply and demand, frequency control with increasing wind and solar PV penetration.

Practical examples will be provided throughout the course. Topical questions will be explored, such as: “How do Spain and Ireland intend achieving 50% renewable energy?”, “How did Portugal manage to operate for 4 days on renewable energy alone?”, and “What are the renewable penetration possibilities for South and Southern Africa?”

COST : Non-Member R6,500, SAIEE Member R5,500 (incl. teas, lunches and course material)

*Note: If proof of payment is received before commencement of the course, the following rates will apply:

Non-member R5,850 ; SAIEE member R4,950.
