Penetration of renewables and reduction of synchronous inertia in the European power system

The share of renewable energy sources in the generation mix is being increased dramatically. Considering that most generation based on renewable energy sources is fundamentally different from classical generating units, while complexifying the power control in the system, the objective of the study is to define frequency control strategies to cope with increasing integration of renewables in the grid.
