Stochastic Processes in Communication Sciences

Wind and PV generation is usually connected to the grid using an asynchronous interface: induction generator in the case of wind and DC/AC converter in the case of PV. As the operation of the power system is based around synchronous operation of synchronous generators used in traditional coal/gas/nuclear/hydro power stations , there is a technical limit of how much asynchronous generation can be connected to an AC interconnection. Recent studies in Ireland indicate that the limit is about 50-75% of the total generation operating at any time. The talk will discuss the physical reasons for the limit and possible means of overcoming it.
