Invited Talk-I-Electrical Engineering

Ancillary services by Photo Voltaic (PV) energy conversion systems


The term ancillary services are used to refer to a variety of operations beyond generation and transmission that are required to maintain grid stability and security. These services generally include reactive power and voltage control, active power and frequency control, mitigation of energy imbalance, harmonic mitigation etc. One of the benefits in large scale grid integration of renewables is the potential of ancillary support to the grid. The talk will discuss control methodologies for renewable energy sources. A brief description will be presented on how renewable energy sources, particularly solar photo voltaic (PV) energy conversion systems, can be used as an ancillary service provider.
