Monitoring and Control of Renewable Energy Sources using Synchronized Phasor Measurements
2014 (English)In: Renewable Energy Integration: Practical Management of Variability, Uncertainty, and Flexibility in Power Grids, Elsevier, 2014, 413-428 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)Text
The share of wind power has strongly increased in electricity production, raising several issues concerning its integration to power grids. Unexpected dynamic phenomena, such as oscillatory events around 13 Hz have been recorded in the US by Oklahoma Gas & Electric (OG&E). Such interactions differ from traditional and well studied inter-area oscillations, and the ability to detect them is beyond the measurement capabilities of most of the existing measurement equipment and monitoring tools in Energy Management Systems (EMS) systems. This chapter presents the development and implementation of algorithms for fast oscillation detection, focusing on the aforementioned case. It proposes two solutions for real-time monitoring application that exploits synchronized phasor measurements allowing real-time analysis of sub-synchronous wind farm dynamics. These tools were built as prototypes for real-time application which utilizes Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) data for enhanced monitoring and control of wind farms. The software tools developed in the chapter serve as evidence of the flexibility offered by non-conventional software development systems for PMU applications which provide unlimited opportunities to conceive new software tools that will aid with the integration and management of renewable resources into power grids.
