Hot Topic Q3 - Frequency Stability and Control in Smart Grids
By Hassan Bevrani, Qobad Shafiee, and Hêmin Golpîra
Frequency stability and control is one of the most important problems in interconnected power grids design and operation. Several control loops are operating to maintain the system frequency at its set-point. Each one has its particular specification and relies on a given amount of power reserve that is kept available to cope with power deviations. The majority of supply-demand balancing is achieved by controlling the output of dispatchable generating units.
