Abstract
Renewable energy has been at the forefront of Power System expansion for the past few decades. However, the nature of renewable energy is different from the familiar conventional power plants. Despite of progresses made in the past few years, integrating renewable generation has many challenges. Fortunately, the same level of innovations has been made in the area of supporting technologies as well that enables us to find breakthroughs and opportunities to integrate higher levels of renewable energy penetration into our grid. This presentation presents an overview of decades of renewable energy development, deployment, and grid integration.
