Tutorial Overview:

This course consists of four separate sessions presented by various instructor. Each session will be presented by two instructors for two separate sub-sections. The course will cover the various aspects of Advanced Pumped Storage Hydropower (A-PSH) plant. The advanced pumped storage hydropower is considered to be a reliable large scale generator and energy storage, able to support high penetration renewable energy in the future power system. The course starts with an overview, the role of PSH, various implementation of A-PSH in different countries, and dynamic modeling of A-PSH. Topics covered in this tutorial include dynamic models developed and deployed in major commercial software platforms for positive sequence stability analysis (e.g. PSSE and PSLF). The experiences of development, commissioning, and validation of A-PSH will be presented by several developers and manufacturers of A-PSH.
This course is aimed at practicing electrical engineers, research engineering communities, graduate students and power engineering faculty members, power plant developers, hydropower manufacturers, energy storage developers, utility and independent system operators, policy makers who are interested in large scale deployment of renewable energy, variable generation, inverter based resources to maintain and improve power system reliability and stability.
This online tutorial will cover the following topics in each session:
