The post Despite Dead DOE Rule, Grid Resiliency Persists as a Major Concern appeared first on POWER Magazine.

The U.S. power industry lacks forward-looking ways to measure grid resiliency and traditional reliability metrics could become irrelevant as more intermittent generation inundates the bulk power system. But rather than continually looking backward to learn from ever-increasing emergencies or close-shaves, power system operators must work to cultivate a balanced portfolio that considers all aspects of […]

The POWER Interview: Adapting to the Use of DERs

Credit to Author: Darrell Proctor| Date: Tue, 29 Sep 2020 23:40:53 +0000

The post The POWER Interview: Adapting to the Use of DERs appeared first on POWER Magazine.

Distributed energy resources (DERs) have become a major part of today’s power generation landscape. DERs are physical and virtual assets that are deployed across the grid. They are typically close to load, and can be deployed both in front of and behind the meter. Bill Strohecker, Country Managing Director, Canada, for Hitachi ABB Power Grids, […]

The post Improve Wind Turbine Safety with a Piston Accumulator Retrofit appeared first on POWER Magazine.

Wind turbines are designed to maximize power production based on the predicted wind speeds found at the plant site. However, excessive wind speeds are experienced at times, so it is crucial to limit power generation at those times to avoid spontaneous runaway turbine situations that may cause damage to the turbine rotor or other parts […]

The post Summer 2020 Brought ERCOT Market Challenges, But Nothing Like 2019 appeared first on POWER Magazine.

The Texas power market made headlines in August 2019 when wholesale prices for electricity repeatedly spiked close to and even hit the $9,000-per-megawatt-hour (MWh) cap. This August, average hourly prices peaked at “just” $1,700 per MWh, the afternoon of Aug. 15. There were many reasons for the reduced price volatility in Texas this year. First, […]
