  3. 3. Introduction The 20th century had seen significant advances in energy generation, delivery and utilization, but has also produced tremendous impact on the environment and natural resources. • Significant changes must be made to how we generate, deliver and use energy so as to – establish sustainable utilization, and – restore environmental balance. • Education must occur at all levels: – researchers; – workforce; – consumers. 3
  4. 4. Needs of the 21st century • Decrease fossil fuel consumption – 85% of today’s energy supply comes from fossil fuels. – Transportation and electric generation need to move away from fossil fuels. – Fossil fuels are the predominant contributors to environmental pollution. (COx, SOx, NOx, particulates) –Will also lead to energy independence. 4
  5. 5. • Increase renewable generation – 7% of today’s energy supply comes from renewable sources (hydroelectric, geothermal, wind, solar, biomass). – Renewable generation must increase significantly but responsibly. • Increase nuclear generation suitably – 8% of today’s energy supply comes from nuclear power – Nuclear generation must increase so that there is adequate supply from steady sources. 5
  6. 6. Sustainable utilization of resources • Technological enablers – Energy efficient buildings with thermal storage – “Smart” homes and “smart” appliances – Demand response and load management programs – Energy efficient transportation: hybrid and electric vehicles – Storage and direct conversion technologies • Growing need for conservation • Demand profiles will change significantly – Composition of load is changing – Load factor is likely to change too 6
  7. 7. Forms of renewable energy resources  Wind turbines and wind farms,  Solar photovoltaic (PV) cells,  Solar-thermal energy,  Fuel Cells  Geothermal  Wave and tidal energy  Biomass  Micro or mini hydro 7

  10. 10. Distributed Generation Distributed Generation (DG) technology incorporates wind turbines, micro turbines, photovoltaic systems, fuel cells, energy storage and synchronous generator applications to supply active power to distributed systems connected close to the consumers load. This concept is becoming a major player for Green House Gases (GHG) mitigation and power system reliability. 10
  11. 11. Distributed Energy Resources • Generating Devices –Windmills – PV and solar thermal – Microturbines – Fuel cells – Biomass and biofuels – Geothermal power – Tidal and ocean thermal – Reciprocating engines 11
  12. 12. • Storage Devices – Batteries – Ultracapacitors – SMES – Flywheels • Combined heat and power • Interruptible loads 12
  13. 13. Comparison between Centralized and Distributed Generation 13 Fig 3
  14. 14. Challenges of Distributed Generation  Intermittent in nature.  Free but not always usable.  Deteroriate system stability.  Less efficiency.  Voltage regulation problem.  Less predictable load patterns – rooftop solar, electric vehicles, and smart grid  Changing revenue patterns - Decreasing marginal prices and changes in resource operational pattern 14
  15. 15. Solution to the challenges :  Upgrade existing traditional grid to smart grid.  Smart grid can absorb large fluctuations.  Demand side management and demand response.  Smart systems allow better use of variable capacitor banks, STATCOM, automatic reclosures,etc.  SCADA approach to volt/VAR control. 15
  16. 16. Smart Grid :Overview 16  Coined in 2007 by A. Carvallo.  According to United States Department of Energy’s modern grid initiative: an intelligent or smart grid integrates advance sensing technologies, control methods and integrated communications into the current electricity grid. Fig 4. A “Smart” Grid
  17. 17. According to[EPRI 2006]: “The term ‘Smart Grid’ refers to a modernization of the electricity delivery system so it monitors, protects and automatically optimizes the operation of its interconnected elements from the central and distributed generator through the high-voltage network and distribution system, to industrial users and building automation systems, to energy storage installations and to end-use consumers…” 17 Energy Smart IT Grid Telecom Fig 5.

  22. 22. Advanced Metering Infrastructure(AMI) or Smart Meters : 22 A smart meter is a digital meter that record energy usage inreal time. Includes hardware, software, communications, consumer energy displays and controllers, customer associated systems, Meter Data Management (MDM) software, and supplier business systems. Fig 8.

  23. 23. AMI: Two Layers 23 1. Transport Layer: 2 components A. The physical smart meter-replacing the older mechanical one. B. AMI Communications network to transport the data. 2. Application Layer : Information converted to actionable intelligence via meter specific applications.
  24. 24. With large numbers of high speed sensors called PMUs and the ability to compare shapes from alternating current readings everywhere on the grid, research suggests that automated systems will be able to revolutionize the management of power systems by responding to system conditions in a rapid, dynamic fashion.
