National Workshop on Power Electronics 2017 IIT Roorkee

Event Description

Smart grids accept distributed intermittent generations (renewables) such as wind, photovoltaic, high energy batteries to enhance overall power system operations. The key challenges to interconnect such generations into the grid are: (1) advanced regulatory mechanisms are needed to maintain high energy efficiency, power quality and reliability during their fluctuations, (2) backup storage due to its intermittent nature. Distributed energy storage systems (capturing, storing and releasing electric power in large amount) help smart grid to optimize utilization of distributed generations. Storage systems are also of great importance, not just for integrating renewable energy sources, but for the variations in the demand. Several possible technologies for electricity storage are including high energy batteries, flywheels, superconducting magnetics, compressed air, and pumped hydroelectric. Among the mentioned technologies, pumped hydro is a reliable and bulk storage system.
