The Impact on Renewable Energy of Power Management Systems
Renewable distributed energy sources are becoming more commonly considered by businesses and some local community applications to improve power autonomy; however, unlike conventional utility power sources, renewables, such as solar and wind, are intermittent and variable by their very nature.
Traditional power management systems are primarily designed to switch from utility power to another continuous power source, such as a backup generator. Most recently, microgrid technologies are being considered to help optimize the availability of power systems as well as allowing them to accommodate a variety of variable and intermittent distributed energy sources. As a result, microgrid-based power systems can incorporate various energy storage technologies to increase and optimize the use of renewable energy sources effectively and seamlessly to meet long-term sustainability goals in an environmentally conscious world.
As a result, utilities, as well as businesses and local communities, are utilizing or considering microgrids, which can incorporate various energy storage technologies to increase the overall availability and autonomy of their power systems.
- Discuss the fundamental characteristics of renewable energy resources.
- Identify the potential impact of renewable energy on traditional power management systems.
- Explain how microgrids integrate energy storage to optimize the utilization of renewable sources.
- Discover how microgrid power management systems can make incorporating traditional and renewable energy sources easier to increase the overall availability and power autonomy.
