EnerNex’s Jens Schoene presented the system planning challenges utilities have to face when accommodating growing numbers of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) – in particular photovoltaics (PV) and energy storage. Results of computer simulations predict issues before they occur thereby facilitating timely mitigation measures, but it is important to be aware of model limitations that may lead to recommendations for unnecessary and expensive mitigation. The webinar covers:
- Benefits that DER can provide to support grid operations.
- Effects that DER can have when deployed in large numbers on the utility grid.
- Methodologies and simulation tools that distribution system engineers can use to plan for measures that mitigate the DER-imposed operational challenges as well as harvest DER potential.
We invite you to tune-in to this complimentary webinar.
