Abstract Currently the bulk of energy generated from fossil fuels, nuclear, geothermal, hydro and some
wind resources interface with the grid through rotary machines. An ever increasing but small portion of
generation comes from renewable energy resources distributed across the network that are harvested
and dispatched into the grid by power electronics. It is well understood that increased penetration of
renewable DERs introduces power quality and system wide stability issues. This webinar explores the
effect of classically controlled DERs on grid stability and future directions for achieving autonomous grid
forming capability with power electronics.
