  • With more renewable energy integration into distribution networks, the behaviours of the distribution networks become much more complicated and invisible due to newly emerged inverter-based distribution generators (e.g., solar PV, electrical vehicle, inverter-based household appliances). In recent years, Distribution Phasor Measurement Units (D-PMUs), high precision GPS-based monitoring device are starting installed into distribution networks in Australia to make the distribution system visible. Therefore, the distribution network service providers (DNSPs) /utilities are planning to install more D-PMUs into distribution networks to monitor the system operating status. Subsequently, this project is to develop innovative data analytic and situational awareness appraoches to make the distribution network more visiable and controllable.

  • With high renewable energy integration and large-scale battery storage intallation into the power grid, the power network frequency control becomes much more flexible with these electronic-based power sources. These inverter-based power sources can provide fast frequency response though rapid active power increase or decrease in a short timeframe to correct the power imbalance and restore power system frequency. FFR usually is slower than inertial response but quicker than the primary frequency control. Thus, the coordinated frequency control between the inverter-based power sources and the traditional frequency will be essential for power system secure operation. Moreover, the coordination among inverter-based power sources are also critical due to their different response time. This project aims to provide coordinated frequency control strategies to cost-effectively use the FFR and ensure the the frequency stability of the power grid.
