Stability enhancement of utility-scale renewable energy farms in weak grids
Australia has a national grid with many weak areas. It is currently undergoing a major transformation where fossil fuels are being replaced by renewable energy resources such as solar and wind. Many of these renewable resources are located in weak areas of the grid and are prone to various stability issues. Additionally, with the current trend in increasing the penetration of asynchronous generation, in future years, strong points in the grid are expected to be considerably weaker.
