Smart Grid and Renewable Energy Integration: Challenges, Mitigation Strategies, and Associated Grid Codes
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.
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 an Assistant Professor in the Department of Human and Information Systems, Gifu University, Japan. Since late 2013, he has been with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. Dr Datta was the recipient of the University of the Ryukyus President's honorary award for an outstanding PhD thesis. He is a member of the Institute of Electrical Engineers, Japan and IEEE, USA. His research interests include motor drives, distributed generation forecasting, microgrid modelling, grid integration of DGs, and intelligent ancillary services in the smart grid.
