In the last few years, the introduction of energy from renewable sources into electricity supply industries worldwide has been boosted. Unfortunately integrating a substantial amount of renewable energy sources into wholesale electricity markets is not simple and brings two main issues.
First: the richest renewable resource potential is often located far from population centers; therefore adequate transmission lines are required to interconnect renewable energy sources to the grid.
Second: the electricity system must manage the intermittency of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, which cannot be turned on and off at will (as is for fossil fuel power plants). In order to reduce overload problems and avoid blackout phenomena, the electricity system must react to network emergencies and problems through auto-diagnosis and auto-reconfiguration processes.
Tesmec innovation efforts are focused in providing solutions to solve these problems.
