National Renewable Energy Laboratory Explains Why Minimum Generation Is Key to Maximum Renewable Integration

Feb. 22, 2018

National Renewable Energy Laboratory researchers published a new article in the journal Energy Policy that illustrates the importance of quantifying power system operational constraints to enable more renewables on the grid. One of the key issues with integrating renewables on the electric grid is understanding how they interact with the rest of the power system—specifically, how much system operators should vary the output of conventional generators to accommodate the variability of wind and solar.
