  • Integrated Solutions for Photovoltaic Grid Connection: Increasing the Reliability of Solar Power

    Page(s): 84 - 91
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (3738 KB)  

    In recent years, solar power generation using photovoltaics (PVs) has become popular since it is inexpensive and has low installation costs, especially where grid power is inconvenient or unreasonably expensive to connect. Solar power generation is also increasing in grid-connected situations as a way to feed low-carbon energy into the grid. However, since solar power is intermittent and unstable, PV grid connection may have an influence on the stability of grid operation. View full abstract»

    Over the past 50 years, there have been changes in the electrical grid, both technological and operational. We will witness the pace of change increase in the next 50. Where and when we generate energy, as well as how we consume it, is in the process of changing, and the rate of that change is increasing. View full abstract»

    A sense of urgency has been brought to energy issues around the world, including addressing the power grid infrastructure and environmental concerns. Reliable and efficient electrical grid operation is recognized internationally as the most critical for society as other infrastructures depend heavily on electricity. Energy consumption is changing due to technological, economic, and regulatory drivers. The electrical power and energy industry is in a critical phase undergoing a transition, and the initiatives we take now will affect how the grid is operated years from now. View full abstract»

  • Trusting the Data: ComEd's Journey to Embrace Analytics

    The convergence of information technology (IT) with the 20th-century power grid has resulted in the development of smart electricity grids in the 21st century. The ultimate goal in the introduction of IT is to achieve an adaptable, secure, reliable, resilient, and flexible power grid that is able to address current and future reliability, economic, and environmental challenges. The application of IT has also resulted in myriad sensors and measurement and monitoring devices, among others, for enabling real-time, more intelligent control of the electricity infrastructure. Communication sensors often gather much more data than required for their intended applications in power grids. The storage and utilization of such data allows further applications in power grids, ranging from real-time alarm processing of potential grid violations and directing maintenance crews to trouble spots during major storm events to finding seasonal trends in deteriorating power quality levels. The collected data (labeled “big data” in the literature) require efficient storage, processing, and analytics, which is a major challenge for large utilities worldwide. In addition, if the collected data are not accurately analyzed for management decision making in utility companies, the envisioned benefits of the smart grid will not be fully captured and investments will be wasted. The ultimate goal for utilizing a smart grid is to efficiently integrate big data with diverse sets of applications and enhance the operations and control of electricity grids for addressing the energy needs and challenges in an evolving environment.

  • Survival of the Efficient: Updating Power Plants to Meet the Challenges of the Future

    Page(s): 112 - 116

    This article is written under the assumption that little will change in our federal government, i.e., the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will continue to push its agenda and, without a national energy policy, allow state governments to mandate renewable energy requirements. Avoid “lost” energy that otherwise might create system inefficiency and destroy equipment. Efficiency and reliability are complimentary. When you are looking to replace those 40-plus-year-old motors or planning a system upgrade or new construction, think total system (plant) efficiency. Efficiency is the least expensive course of action the power industry can take given the current economic and environmental situation. Efficiency comes in many forms, and motor-driven pumping systems are only a portion of the potential savings available. View full abstract»
