Generating Electricity from Variable Renewable Sources: Effect on the Grid (AIA# TCEVAR) (6 credit hours/6 HSW Hours)
This 6 hour course provides an overview of the current U. S. electrical grid, including 1) how planning and operations are carried out to ensure reliability, 2) requirements for power reserves to provide continuous service in the face of equipment failure, 3) transmission technology, and 4) economic aspects. It then explores the challenges to the grid posed by high levels of variable renewable generation and some changes that are expected to occur in response to these challenges.
