IEC White Paper: Stable grid operations in a future of distributed electric power – en

Increasingly, electricity is generated outside of big power plants, for example through solar panels, small wind turbines or small hydro, and usually close to where it is consumed. When more energy is generated than consumed, surplus energy is fed back into the existing power network where it can negatively affect grid stability. Unlike with traditional power generation, these additional resources are often invisible to grid operators, who are unable to predict and control when energy is fed back into the network.
