I commenced my E. S. Cornwall Memorial Scholarship in July 2018, working with the California Independent System Operation (CAISO) – my first and second quarterly reports described some of my experiences at CAISO.
My third report (accessible here) provides an overview of my learnings during my time at Electranix, and impressions made, from January to March 2019. During this time, I worked on dynamic performance testing of large inverter connected generation in weak systems in North America. These included solar farms, wind farms and battery energy storage systems (BESS’s) with the addition of nearby High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) converters, synchronous machines and other inverter connected generation.
I developed new skills in PSCAD and E-TRAN while further developing my skills in PSS/E, Python and technical communication.
I look forward to receiving feedback on my report.
