Abstract: The severe winter storm that hit the US during the week of February 14, 2021 has wreaked havoc with the electric power generation and delivery system in the United States, putting large numbers of customers under rotating outage and extended power outage for many customers. The situation in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) has been especially glaring and harsh. Large amount of gas fired units and renewable energy were offline and ERCOT has ordered rotating outage. The Settlement Point Prices (SPP) reached US$9000/MWH for an extended period.
This presentation introduces the ERCOT system, the structure of the deregulated market in ERCOT, the sequence of the event that has happened between February 14, 2021 and February 19, 2021, and possible measures to mitigate the impact to the customers.

Abstract: The zero carbon grid, which is centered on renewable energy generation, is coming to us. There is no doubt that this is the future of the energy and power industry. But the zero carbon power grid faces great challenges in the safe and stable operation, which is mainly manifested in: intermittent fluctuation of renewable energy generation causes the uncertainty of power supply, and causes the frequency, voltage to fluctuate greatly until it can not operate stably; Because new energy generation is connected to AC power grid through inverter, the increasing proportion of DC transmission in the grid, the risk of power outage in the whole network is increasing due to the cascading failure of AC DC hybrid grid, which becomes the biggest security threat to the operation of the power grid. The report analyzes the security challenges faced by zero carbon power grid, and then puts forward the technical countermeasures for developing energy storage technology and building system protection.

Abstract: The energy consumption of buildings accounts for approximately 40% of the total energy consumption. Accurate analysis of the energy consumption of buildings not only promises significant energy savings but also helps to more accurately estimate the demand response potential and consequently brings benefits to the upstream power grid. This paper will focus on integrated energy service technology for intelligent park. Application forms of building energy analysis in areas such as energy efficiency promotion, electricity safety, user behavior analysis, and grid interaction will be discussed. This has great significance for the construction of integrated energy service system centered on residents or load aggregators. This paper proposes a novel physical-data fusion method for modeling smart buildings that can achieve an accurate assessment of energy consumption. The thermal process model of buildings and the electrical load model focusing on building heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are presented to analyze the thermal electrical conversion process of building energy consumption. The physical-data fusion method is used to improve the accuracy of the energy consumption analysis model of buildings, including modifying the parameters that are difficult to measure in the physical model, effectively modifying the electrical load model based on the proposed physical-data fusion method. Finally, the author will take an actual intelligent park in Jiangsu Province, China, as an example to introduce the research work of their team and the outlook for the future.

Abstract: Accurate and reliable forecasting of renewable energy generation is essential to modern power system operation and control. Probabilistic forecasting becomes an effective tool for prediction uncertainty quantification in modern power systems with high penetration of renewable energy. This talk would give an overview of the development of renewable energy and the basics of probabilistic forecasting. A series of machine learning based probabilistic renewable energy forecasting methodologies would be introduced. With the aid of prediction intervals of renewable energy generation, the operating reserves of power systems could be optimally quantified. Numerical experiments demonstrate that the proposed probabilistic forecasting methodologies are effective for uncertainty quantification and could promisingly facilitate the integration of renewable energy.
