Pathways to a Smarter Power System studies different concepts within smart grids that are used in both industry and system regulators (e.g. distribution and transmission system operators) and research. This book covers these concepts from multiple perspectives and in multiple contexts, presenting detailed technical information on renewable energy systems, distributed generation and energy storage units, methods to activate the demand side of power systems, market structure needs, and advanced planning concepts and new operational requirements, specifically for power system protection, technological evolvements, and requirements regarding technology in ICT, power electronics and control areas.
This book provides energy researchers and engineers with an indispensable guide on how to apply wider perspectives to the different technological and conceptual requirements of a smarter power system.
- Includes concepts regarding conceptual and technological needs and investment planning suggestions for smart grid enabling strategies
- Contains new electric power system operational concepts required by industry, along with R&D studies addressing new solutions to potential operational problems
- Covers pathways to smarter power systems from successful existing examples to expected short, medium and long-term possibilities
