New research from America’s national labs shows that smaller scale “run-of-river” hydropower (ROR) can provide just as much baseload stability as reservoir-based hydropower plants while being highly responsive to real-time grid and market changes. Hydropower plants produced roughly seven percent of the electricity in the United States in 2017. OutContinue Reading

Renewable sources account for around 34 per cent of Rajasthan’s total installed power generation capacity of 21.6 Gw. The state is planning to increase solar and wind generation capacity to 14.3 Gw by 2022 which requires remote monitoring and grid stability.

The integration of regional grids, and thereby establishment of National Grid, was conceptualised in early nineties. The integration of regional grids which began with asynchronous HVDC back-to-back inter-regional links facilitating limited exchange of regulated power was subsequently graduated to high capacity synchronous links between the regions. By the end ofContinue Reading

There are two basic types of energy storage – front of the meter, commonly known as grid-scale storage, and behind the meter, in which individual property owners and businesses make use of storage options installed on their own premises to better manage onsite solar systems and take advantage of lowerContinue Reading
