Inertia and Frequency Response in the Future Grid
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET
What is the difference between inertia and frequency response? How can a grid be reliable without conventional synchronous generators? Could a 100% renewable grid be engineered to be even more reliable? This tutorial will explain these concepts in common language that doesn’t require an engineering degree. It will also discuss the capabilities of renewables to provide important reliability services, how FERC is ensuring that all new generators will have these capabilities, and the emerging research on “inertia-less” grids for the future.
