CIGRE NGN Joint Wind Energy Webinar
Wednesday 17th June 2020
14:00 – 16:00 (BST) 

In 2019, 60.4 GW of wind energy capacity was installed globally, a 19% increase from installations in 2018 and the second-best year for wind historically. Total capacity for wind energy globally is now over 651 GW.  So how can we exploit the full potential of wind energy?

The speakers/topics are: –

  • Professor Vladimir Terzija, “Smart Frequency Control in Power Systems with a High Penetration of Nonsynchronous Generation”.
  • Dr Xianxian Zhao, “Fast Frequency Support from Wind Turbine Systems by Arresting Frequency Nadir Close to Settling Frequency”
  • Dr Peter Wall, “Identifying scarcities on the All Island system in 2030 – perspectives from EU-SysFlex”
  • Tolulope Mayomi, “The opportunities of dynamic line rating for overcoming curtailment challenges”

In light of the current global situation, the CIGRE UK and CIGRE Ireland Next Generation Network (NGN) committees have come together to create their first joint, online webinar on the topic of Wind Energy.  Please note that the webinar is free and open to all members, however, registration from NGN members will be considered first if the numbers exceed our hosting capacity.

The event will be hosted via an Online Conference Platform. Please sign up to the Eventbrite page and you will receive the link and detailed agenda by email.
