Power Systems for Non-Power Engineers
October 5 @ 18:00 - 19:30 EDT
This presentation is an overview of the evolution of the electric utility to the present partially decentralized form. Why AC and three phase? What are the special problems of higher voltages? How is the power system grounded? It also explains the technical background to stability and the causes of various types of disturbances.
The emergence of renewables and distributed energy resources and their impact on the network is presented. How will the grid be controlled in the future?
