Scope of Programme

Electricity and the underlying infrastructure for its production, transmission, and distribution are essential to the well-being of society. The rising concerns of climate change and depletion of fossil fuels in the foreseeable future are driving renewable generation developments rapidly. Among the various renewable sources, the wind and solar energies are the most dominant technologies because of their abundancy and outstanding technical and economic prospect. Global Energy Council estimated that 20 Million MW of wind can be utilized which is nearly 10 times higher than the water energy. The emerging advancements in renewable energy technologies seems to make them most economical in near future. However, in power system perspective, renewable energy technologies come with many issues. That starting from the uncertainty and intermittency to reduced inertial support. Their impact on overall behavior power system cannot be overlooked and becomes more complex when it comes a deal with stability issues. On this context, this national workshop is aimed at delivering an overview of instability problems associated with the integration of large-scale renewable energy integration. It can facilitate better understanding of small signal stability of high renewable energy penetrated power systems and potential solutions to accommodate high penetration via large-scale integration of renewable energy.
