Reliability Evaluation of Renewable Generation Integrated Power Grid including Adequacy and Dynamic Security Assessment (S-75)

Summary Probabilistic methodologies are needed for reliability assurance in the emerging power grids with increasing penetration of renewable resources. Most of the probabilistic methodologies have focused on the adequacy issues. Some work has also been done on the probabilistic stability including, small signal and transient stability. The objective of this proposal is to integrate reliability into a single frame work including adequacy and transient stability evaluation and develop computationally tractable methods to achieve this objective.
