Title:  Transmission Planning Issues with Renewable Resources on “Dispatched” Generation

 

 


Introduction:  The development of renewable energy sources has had a profound impact on the domestic energy generation landscape.  However, there is a growing body of evidence demonstrating how large penetrations of wind power generation in power systems contribute to increase the cost and the complexity of electrical grid operations. Those costs and increased complexity are directly linked to the random nature of the wind over time. 

 


Bio:  Jamie Austin attended the University of Portland and graduated with BSEE & MSEE degrees in Electrical Engineering - Power Systems.  Jamie is a Principal Transmission Planning Engineer at PacifiCorp and her work focuses on Regional Transmission Planning.  Her background includes wide-ranging Electric Power Engineering experience including system planning, system operations, resource planning and regulatory compliance. 


 Summary:

The mission of the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) is to be the leading provider of scientific information on electric power and energy for the betterment of society and the preferred professional development source for our members.

PES members are involved in the planning, research, development, construction, installation, and operation of equipment and systems for the safe, reliable, and economic generation, transmission, distribution, measurement, and control of electric energy.
