Abstract

In addition to other measures such as energy saving, the adoption of a large amount of microgeneration driven by renewable and low carbon energy resources is expected to have the potential to reduce losses associated with producing and delivering electricity, combat climate change and fuel poverty, and improve the overall system performance. However, incorporating a substantial volume of microgeneration within a system that is not designed for such a paradigm could lead to conflicts in the operating strategies of the new and existing centralized generation technologies. This paper investigates the impact of tripping substantial volumes of LV connected microgeneration on the dynamic performance of a large system during significant low frequency events. An initial dynamic model of the UK system based on a number of coherent areas as identified in the UK Transmission Seven Year Statement (SYS) has been developed within a real time digital simulator (RTDS) and this paper presents the early study results.
