Title: R&D 100 Winner 2017: Control System for Active Damping of Inter-Area Oscillations

Abstract

Researchers at Sandia National Labs have developed a control system to improve damping of inter-area oscillations to improve power grid reliability. Current grids operate will below transmission capacity to avoid widespread outages due to inter-area oscillations. This control system is the first successful grid demonstration of feedback control making it a game changer for the smart grid.
