Designing a Sustainable and Reliable Future: Simulating Next Generation Energy Systems
Abstract: Power systems worldwide are changing rapidly in the face of the global challenge of decarbonization and the subsequent addition of more distributed and variable renewable energy sources. Since the power system is enormous in scale, has very long investment horizons, and stringent reliability requirements, changes to the system need to be thoroughly validated through computational simulations before being implemented in practice. This talk focuses on the challenges of renewables integration and the simulation methods and data being developed to help design future low-cost highly reliable interconnected energy systems.
