Abstract

Integrating renewable energy resources (RER) into the power grid may jeopardize the whole power system if the penetration level or solar PV uncertainty is not thoroughly managed. The critical impact on the behaviour of power system can be observed during the line outage in a power grid connected with large-scale RER. Therefore, contingency analysis (CA) is crucial to assess such hybrid power grid. This paper proposes a framework based on CA to assess the simultaneous effect of large-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants integrated with the existing power grid, particularly, in the aspects of implementing effective measuring indices. Simulation studies have been carried out on a practical power system, which was modelled by considering the probability of solar irradiance at different locations in Sarawak. The study presented in this paper can provide an insight to identify the level of insecurity for a large-scale deployment of solar PV systems in Sarawak.
