Integration of renewable energy technologies such as wind, solar and geothermal energy to the transmission and the distribution networks increases rapidly and brings major changes to power system operation. To control reliability and operational efficiency of modern grids, power engineers regularly perform the following studies:
Powersys provides power systems simulation tools to perform above listed studies.
EMTP-RV software has detailed transient models for variable speed wind turbines and fixed speed technologies. These transient models are increasingly being requested to investigate many of the interconnection issues. Power engineers who use EMTP-RV can also play with the phasor domain software CYME to estimate the capacity of green energy to integrate in the grid and evaluate the long-term performance of renewable energy sources.
