In response to the ever increasing amount of Renewable Energy Resources production integrated in Power Systems, Energy Management Systems (EMS) used for decades in control centers to manage power flows need to adapt. This paper aims at providing detailed understanding of impacts on “standard” EMS functions of these new sources of productions. This paper will first highlight the characteristics of Renewable Energy Resources production. It will then focus on structuring all the modules of an EMS which need functional adaptation, extension or new applications to tackle these new game changers. A deep dive on several detailed functional aspects is then presented which highlights several areas such as production forecast management and integration, generation control, network security analysis and advanced user interface.
