CIGRE Next Generation Network Webinar – Technical Integration of Distributed Energy Resources – Emerging System Security Challenges
 
Abstract
Distributed PV is growing rapidly in the National Electricity Market (NEM), and minimum demand levels are reducing. South Australia is forecast to reach zero megawatts of operational demand in the next year or two, with enough distributed PV operating to meet the entire demand of the region. What will this mean for the operation of the power system? What measures need to be put in place to ensure we can continue to operate a secure and reliable power system? This presentation will cover AEMO’s investigations into power system operation in periods with low demand and high levels of distributed PV, discussing emerging power system security challenges such as distributed PV disconnection in response to transmission faults, the need for distributed PV curtailment capabilities to be able to maintain minimum levels of synchronous generating units online for system strength and inertia, and impacts on under frequency load shedding schemes. It will then cover AEMO’s work to address these emerging challenges, particularly changes to Australian Standards to improve disturbance ride-through capabilities and introduce improved compliance measures for distributed resources.
 
Speakers
Dr. Jenny Riesz is a Principal at AEMO, leading a work stream on the operational integration of distributed energy resources (DER) in Australian power systems. Prior to this she conducted post doctoral research at the University of New South Wales on market design for 100% renewable power systems, and was a Principal in Climate Policy and Renewable Energy at ROAM Consulting. Her PhD is in physics.
 
Taru Veijalainen is a Senior Analyst in the Future Energy Systems Team at AEMO. Her work currently focusses on designing and developing timely solutions to address the various challenges that increasing penetrations of distributed energy resources have on the bulk power system. Taru has previous experience as a graduate at AEMO working across various divisions, and in the Solar Hot Water industry. She holds a dual degree in Renewable Energy Engineering and Chemistry from UNSW.
