Integration Of Increasing Amounts of Renewable Energy Sources into Power Grids
The generation of electricity from renewable sources such as wind, hydro, and solar is seeing an increase in global attention as countries work to meet their carbon emission reduction goals. In order to satisfy the expanding requirement for electrical power in developed regions such as the Americas and Europe, there is a developing requirement for improved power transfer capabilities on the transmission lines that are already in place. It is necessary to make changes to the way power is generated in order to ensure that it is generated in a manner that is clean, sustainable, and kind to the environment. In order to preserve the system's stability, as well as the quality and dependability of the power supply, FACTS are being utilised in the process of integrating renewable energy sources into transmission networks.
The shift to clean energy is happening at a quick rate as a direct result of governments all over the world announcing their targets for the reduction of emissions and the neutralisation of carbon. The global energy shift is being driven in large part by a number of variables, one of the most important of which is the falling cost of distributed energy resources (DERs). The World Energy Transition Outlook 2022 published by IRENA indicates that the global energy transition is a long way from being on the right track. To achieve the worldwide goals, renewable energy sources would need to experience a huge expansion across all industry categories, rising from their current share of 14% of total energy to around 40% of total energy in 2030. According to the projections made by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the global annual additions of renewable electricity will triple by the year 2030. (IPCC). The aggressive climate targets that were declared at COP 26 are likely to be the driving force behind the acceleration in the expansion of renewable capacity over the following five years. This acceleration will account for over 95% of the increase in global power capacity through 2026. When compared to the levels in 2020, the stock of renewable electricity had expanded by 9.1% by the end of 2021, with solar and wind capacity additions accounting for the majority of the total renewable capacity growth. All of the major regions of the world have seen an increase in the number of new solar capacity installations, which has now surpassed the total wind energy capacity worldwide. Wind farm installations continued to grow in 2021, but at a slower rate than in the previous year (+93 GW compared to +111 GW). It is anticipated that the capacity of renewable electricity sources will expand by more than 60 % between the years 2020 and 2026, reaching more than 4800 GW. This is equivalent to the total power capacity that the world's fossil fuels and nuclear power plants currently have. The expansion of the use of renewable energy sources and the integration of those sources into the grid would make it considerably more challenging to maintain the grid's stability and reliability. Because FACTS provide the optimal answer, it is anticipated that demand for FACTS will continue to be strong in the years to come.
Development In Power Transmission Systems and The Controllability of Power Systems.
The global market for flexible AC transmission systems is expected to experience a remarkable expansion in the coming years as a result of an increase in the demand for advanced controllability of energy systems as well as an increase in investments made toward the development of power transmission systems.
