Operating and Optimizing Renewable Power and Distributed Energy Resources
Transmission & Distribution
With 24 million population, 13 million+ customers and 50GW installed capacity, Taiwan Power Company (TPC) has taken steps to establish a high quality and efficiency grid for a low-carbon society and sustainable community. TPC has adopted PI System for generation, renewable and Emergency Operations Center under Dispatcher Center. Taiwan Power Research Institute (TPRI) is to setup the short, medium and long term goals and search for the innovative direction in energy technologies to support a modern grid. The talk will show how to use PI System to cope with renewable wind & solar challenges, develop forecasting, methodology and results. It will introduce a new initiative, using PI-based technology for microgrid/distributed energy resource management system testbed. The use cases will validate the control system’s capability to operate with higher% of intermittent resources by utilizing the various assets (wind, solar PV, micro-turbine, variable load bank, and energy storage) effectively.
