Grid Integration of Renewable Energy Resources - Issues and Solutions
Power output from some renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, can be intermittent. Fluctuations in energy output can impact power grid frequencies, voltages and component performance, causing instability in the power generation system and interruption in services to customers. Concerns about power system reliability limits the amount of new and renewable energy that power utilities and transmission system operators (TSOs) allow to be connected to the grid.
Typically, grid stability is affected when the penetration of renewable sources in the overall energy generation mix exceeds 10%. With many countries mandating renewable energy generation in excess of 20% of the total power generation, issues with grid integration of renewable energy sources need to be solved to ensure the high penetration of distributed generation in the future.
