system stability curve

One of the most important features of an electrical power system is stability. An electrical power system must be stable within the predefined limits against different types of disturbances.

That is the topic that Yasser (one of the members) chose to deal with. If you want to be published in the blog too, send us a mail

New article in our boxmail about SCADA systems. Here’s what you have to know about them…

Introduction

What is SCADA?

SCADA?

SCADA (Supervisory control and data acquisition) is a system that is being used in different manufacturing processes. In energetics, SCADA systems are used in substations, hydropower plants, thermal power plants, photovoltaic power plants, wind power plants etc. Thus the dispatchers can monitor the different parameters in real time (load, voltage, if a failure become etc.). They also can make different switching operations from a distance.

What Is Energy Crisis?

Why Energy Crisis is a Global Concern 1

Energy crisis has been an aggravating issue for world for the last few decades. The main reason for the crisis is the world’s dwindling energy resources & lack of proportionality of energy between nations. The oil prices have surged up to such levels that it has become very difficult for Power Plants to use oil as fuel for generating power.

Main reason for this upsurge in oil prices is the political instability in the oil rich nations. Energy crisis has turned out to be the most pressing issue not just for developing nations but also for developed nations. According to a survey by IEA energy usage has skyrocketed in the last two decades because of rapid advancement in technology, industrialization & increased dependence of users on energy. It is predicted that this trend will continue to increase over the next few decades & keeping theses stats under consideration energy crisis principally becomes a global concern.

This post will unfold those factors that aided in Energy Crisis becoming a global concern and would also explain sequentially on how to resolve each factor & which measures must be taken to use & generate energy economically.

Even if smart grid doesn’t function in the immediate future, we must prepare its deployment as early as possible in all the buildings which produce and consume electricity. User and manager must know in full detail their consumption and be informed in real-time about network status and tariffs…

Smart grid fully integrates the problem of taking into account decentralized sites of renewable energy production, in parallel with conventional power plants.
