Fast Grid Frequency Support from Distributed Inverter-Based Resources

Research output: NRELPresentation


This presentation summarizes power hardware-in-the-loop testing performed to evaluate the ability of distributed inverter-coupled generation to support grid frequency on the fastest time scales. The research found that distributed PV inverters and other DERs can effectively support the grid on sub-second time scales.
