Transforming India’s Power Landscape

India’s National Tariff Policy mandates that power distribution companies (DISCOMs) purchase renewable energy (RE) to meet their renewable purchase obligation (RPO) targets. Procurement of RE, which is less predictable and variable by nature, requires systems to tackle the variability and intermittency of RE power supply and prevent demand-supply mismatches in the grid.

National Open Access Registry: Setting up the enabling infrastructure for dynamic electricity trading in India

India has charted a new path for energy sector reforms. Fueled by a resolute focus on clean, green power, the country is heavily investing in its renewable energy (RE) capacity. Adding a large quantum of RE generation to the power grid will enable India to transition its energy sector to low-carbon intensity and increase its overall energy security.

Shaping Modern India’s Power Systems

India’s power sector is witnessing a slew of reforms aimed at shaping a robust energy landscape for the country. Real-time management of demand-supply variation — to better respond to energy requirements and to enable large-scale integration of renewable energy (RE) — is a key focus area.

Reactive Power Control Strategies for Solar Inverters to Increase the Penetration Level of RE in Power Grid

The active power distribution network operation with the integration of variable renewable energy sources, storage units, and dynamic loads are attracting a lot of interest due to substantial benefits in maximizing the penetration of RES. However, the risk of voltage violation in the power system is increased due to increasing the penetration of DGs/RES [1]-[3].
