Date: 19 January
Time: 2PM London/3PM CET
Transmission system operators worldwide are facing increased challenges from the rise of renewables and inverter-based generation on the grid. This is exacerbated by the closure of ‘conventional’ power stations, which traditionally have contributed to system inertia thanks to the large spinning masses of grid connected synchronous machines, eg turbine-generators.
This Modern Power Systems webinar will explore the nature and magnitude of the problem and discuss potential solutions.
It will include TSO (transmission system operator) perspectives from Julian Leslie, head of networks, National Grid ESO, and Dr Wilhelm Winter, ENTSO-E and lead electrical system design, TenneT, plus a presentation from Christian Payerl of ABB: ‘Synchronous condensers – supporting the roadmap to 100% renewables’.
