Is it possible to achieve power grids with 100% variable generation like wind and solar? At small levels, the power grid can handle the uncertainty and variability of these sources. At much higher levels, there are a number of technical concerns that must be addressed to ensure reliable and economic operations. This presentation will discuss the challenges and solutions to operating power system with high levels of variable renewables.
