Smart Grid and Renewable Energy Integration: Challenges, Mitigation Strategies, and Associated Grid Codes

VCTF Seminar Series
Dr Manoj Datta
RMIT University
Dr Manoj Datta received the Doctor of Engineering degree in Interdisciplinary Intelligent Systems Engineering from Japan in 2011. From 2011 to 2012, he was a JSPS Post-doctoral Research Fellow in the Faculty of Engineering, University of the Ryukyus, Japan. From 2012 to 2013, he was...

This presentation will focus on the challenges of renewable energy integration in the smart grid and their mitigation strategies. In doing so, it will also focus on the different domains of the smart grid, grid codes around the world and in Australia. Due to the variable output nature of the renewable energies, they create voltage and frequency fluctuation problems in the transmission and distribution domains of the electrical power.

To overcome these, several strategies will be presented, combining optimisation, forecasting, and novel control techniques. Then, how these strategies can support the grid codes, particularly for a fault-ride-through operation and self-healing of the grid will be discussed. Finally, some recommendations will be made to realise the dream of smart energy in the world of IoT.

This seminar is part of a series of Energy Transition Hub events supported by the Victorian Clean Technology Fund (VCTF).
