The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is hosting a seminar entitled "Integrating Intermittent Renewable Energy Sources onto the Power Grid" by Thomas Ortmeyer, Clarkson University.
Global climate change issues are driving ambitious plans to increase the levels of renewable energy sources on the power grid. Technological advances are making these energy sources more attractive, while the ongoing deregulation of power systems worldwide make the playing field less certain. Wind and solar technologies are among the most prominent of the renewables. Both are intermittent in nature, however. Large penetrations of these technologies on the grid will lead to engineering challenges that must be addressed before their potential can be fully realized. The distributed nature of these resources also has the potential for providing new operating strategies for the system. This seminar provides information and commentary on both of these issues.
