Integrating a significant amount of distributed energy resources into power grids is a primary task for building a cost-effective renewable portfolio and a sustainable energy infrastructure of the nation. The uncertainty, volatility and lack of inertia of distributed energy resources (wind and solar PV) have posed new challenges to power system planning, operations and control. This talk will be focused on improving power grid reliability and resilience subject to the high penetration of DERs and rare yet disruptive events, by developing new approaches for risk assessment and forecasting of grid-wise or regional- large wind power ramps and by incorporating coordinated control of community solar.
