IBR integration analysis

With society relying heavily on the electric grid to meet decarbonization goals, high penetration of inverter-based resources (IBRs) presents unique challenges and opportunities for system operators and power producers.  Quanta Technology is uniquely positioned with the experience, processes and facilities needed to capitalize on those opportunities while mitigating the challenges. 

The company recently assisted a northeast utility to prepare for high penetration of IBR scenarios utilizing hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing. Multiple models of relays from vendors were subjected to HIL simulations which allowed them to propose mitigations for various scenarios.
