ReNew100 - Reliable Power System Operation with 100% Renewable Generation
Project Innovation + Advantages:
Siemens will develop an operator support system and grid planning functionality that enable a power system to operate with 100% inverter-based renewable generation from wind and solar. ReNew100 features automatic Controller Parameter Optimization and model calibration technologies that help ensure power system reliability as the generation mix changes. Successful test results will be a milestone toward the goal of a stable and reliable power system obtaining a majority of total electrical energy sourced from variable wind and solar.
ReNew100 will pave the way towards 100% inverter-based renewable peak generation from wind and solar in large island systems such as Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
The project expects to achieve a grid reliability level of 98% for mixed generation and 95% for fully renewable generation.
Electricity generation accounts for over 40% of U.S. carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Enabling large-scale contributions of wind and solar power for our electricity generation would result in a substantial decrease in CO2 emissions.
