Studies of the isolated grid of the island of Ireland indicate that increasing energy levels from sustainable sources (e.g., wind turbines, solar photovoltaic installations) weakens the ability of the frequency in the transmission and distribution system to remain stable after transient disturbances due to ensuing decreased inertia in the grid. The aim of this project is to analyse the response of these finite inertia grid systems using numerically exact techniques. Therefore, the problem of maximizing the renewable energy level on a system without compromising the safety and integrity of the existing generator assets will be examined in this project.
