renewable energy solutions
The right RE system integration strategy is critical in minimizing negative impacts.

Maximize the benefits of electrical systems while lowering their costs. Renewable energy sources, on the other hand, pose significant challenges to the power system’s traditional operating structure. Here are some examples:

  • Because the primary source of materials for wind and solar power depends on the weather. This causes fluctuations in power output, making frequency and pressure control difficult.
  • The interconnection of hydroelectric, thermal, and energy storage plants necessitates a high level of system flexibility, including active power equalization between different time domains.
  • When the weather changes, there is a power imbalance caused by errors in the electricity generation forecasts of solar and wind power sources.
  • When the capacity of generated solar power exceeds the capacity of consumed solar power. The electricity will be returned to the grid. Overloading and unsafe operation of the power grid in the area is possible.
