Power quality: interactions between distributed energy resources,the grid, and other customers
2005 (English)In: Leonardo EnergyArticle in journal (Other academic) Published
This paper presents the three aspects of power quality concerning distributed energy resources (DER). The voltage quality experienced by a DER unit impacts the performance of the unit: bad voltage quality may reduce the life length of the unit and lead to incorrect operation or tripping. The DER unit's current (the "current quality" impacts the system and through the system other customers. The hosting-capacity concept is proposed as a systematic method for quantifying the impact of DER units. The third aspect of power quality only appears with large (local or global) penetration of DER. The tripping of DER units on voltage dips or frequency swing endangers the reliability, stability and security of the system.
