    Feed-in tariffs, quota systems, and auction schemes are all used to stimulate NCRE growth in South America. These methods present common challenges in terms of development, operation, and transmission. Common solutions to these challenges are being developed, and Brazil is leading the way with its rapid incorporation of NCRE. The existing market, commercial, and regulatory frameworks may present b... View full abstract»

    New wind power installations in China have doubled every year since 2004. By 2010, China's wind generation capacity of 45 GW ranked first in the world. A total of 30 of 31 provinces, municipalities, and autonomous regions have wind farms. (This article does not discuss wind power development in Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan.) The Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region leads the other provinces with 14 GW... View full abstract»

    This article summarizes some of the key lessons. We first describe a set of "universal truths" that are generally applicable to all power grids seeking to integrate more wind energy. We then provide a few specific examples, emphasiz ing the unique perspectives and experiences of systems in Europe, China, and North America. View full abstract»

    Offshore wind power is a relatively new market that has only really emerged on a commercial scale in the last decade. There are many technical and other challenges with the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of large offshore wind plants; this is especially true when, as is often the case today, they are built with capacities of hundreds of megawatts.

    This article presents an application example of online DSA technology in performing near-real-time security assessment of the power system that covers Ireland and Northern Ireland. It is a single synchronous system that has limited HVDC interconnection to Scotland. The combined maximum and minimum demand of these two systems is approximately 6,800 and 2,500 MW, respectively. Tripping of the larges... View full abstract»

    The application of large-scale voltage-source, BtB HVDC converters to the three North American (i.e., NERC regional) grids presents unique challenges and significant power and transmission scheduling opportunities. The TASS project is a uniquely staged and planned, multistep development of physical facilities that will profoundly affect the marketing of renewable energy in these three regions. The...

    The inventors and pioneers of electrical systems are well documented, but little has been written about those entrepreneurs who brought electric power within the reach of the general public. One who stands out among his peers is Thomas E. Murray. As an executive, engineer, and inventor, Murray's work shaped the utility system of New York City, yet he remains largely un known as he shunned publicit... View full abstract»
