    Frequency response, the response of the power system to large, sudden mismatches between generation and load, has recently been garnering considerable attention across all three interconnections in the US. This paper reports and builds upon the results of a study that was specifically designed to investigate the frequency response of the Eastern Interconnection (EI) due to large loss-of-generation...

    The kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a very vast area and has villages which are very far from the national power grid. Although Saudi Arabia has very high energy potentials from renewable energy resources such as solar and wind energy, diesel generators are still used to supply power for remote villages. However, the concept of an islanded micro grid (MG) is a new method of generating power which invol... View full abstract»

    Power system operators schedule additional capacity above or below the amount required to meet the expected demand at any time interval to ensure reliable operation. This excess capacity is known as operating reserve. This reserve helps protect against the inherent variability and uncertainty found in the system. As more variable generation resources are connected to the system, the amount of vari... View full abstract»
