Impact of Renewable Energy Sources on Power Quality

INTRODUCTION

Presently in India, the installed power capacity is approximately 329.23 GW (329230MW). The renewable energy sources contribute approximately 31.3%. The wind power constitutes approximately 31.2 GW and the solar power constitutes approximately 16.2 GW by the end of September 2017. Both wind and solar power contributions are expected to grow fast with a growth rate over 10%. India is the world’s third largest producer and fourth largest consumer of electricity.

The National Grid (India) is the high-voltage electric power transmission network in mainland India, connecting power stations and major substations and ensuring that electricity generated anywhere in mainland India can be used to satisfy demand elsewhere. The National Grid is owned, operated, and maintained by state-owned Power Grid Corporation of India. It is one of the largest operational synchronous grids in the world with 329.23 GW of installed power generation capacity as on 30 June 2017
