Supporting Energy Transition in Transmission Systems
Currently there are many challenges facing the electrical power industry: mitigating the effects of climate change, sustaining low electricity prices, and maintaining a reliable power supply for all.
One of the solutions being implemented to face these new challenges is an increase in the use of power electronics devices such as High-Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) converters and Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems (FACTS), allowing for the integration of large-scale Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and long AC cables into the transmission grid.
The May/June 2019 issue of the IEEE Power & Energy Magazine includes an article (p.48) that highlights how offline ElectroMagnetic Transient (EMT) simulation and real-time simulation play a fundamental role in the radical technological changes impacting power systems worldwide.
